Such results are more peculiar than particular, and are certainly in no
way useful either to issues of cardinality of the reals nor any part of
standard real analysis.

Whatever of it is at all useful can be better achieved without it.

My "quaint take" is that there is nothing mathematically useful cpable
of being done with it that cannot better be done without it.

And Ross has certainly presented no mathematically sound evidences to
the contrary.

Nor can he!
