I think it is a matter of taste. Some say that SUM1/n! is a number, other do not. But it is not important here to take position.

Yes. And the point here is that Cantor's argument is only valid for decimal expansions and is only supplying decimal expansions. (The original argument applies binaries.)
Since 1/9 has no decimal expansion, it cannot be the anti-diagonal of a Cantor-list.
