It not obvious to me, what you call parameter-free. (And you need not
explain it, because I am not interested in your interpretation.) But
it is obvious to me that Cantor enumerated the rational numbers just
like I enumerate the finite paths of the Binary Tree. And he
enumerated the digits of the diagonal in just the same way, namely
assuming the complete existence of all natural numbers.
