Again, that for all n in N the value is 1/oo just does not entail that the limit is 1/oo.

That's not an argumen against the identity I am assuming. On the contrary, you have not supported your:
lim_{n>oo} 1/Card(N\F(n)) = lim_{n>oo} 1/oo
I.e. your "preemptive" substitution of Card(N\F(n)) with Card(N) = oo seems unwarranted. That equality is true for all n in N, but it is not true in the limit, where n>oo, and F(n) = N.
Indeed, here is how I'd print the sequence and its limit:
1/Card({1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...}) 1/Card({2, 3, 4, 5, ...}) 1/Card({3, 4, 5, ...}) ...  1/Card({})

I'd insist that it's rather your
lim_{n>oo} 1/Card(N\FIS(n)) = lim_{n>oo} 1/oo
that is incorrect. In fact, where's 'n' gone?
