Zermelo does. "Die Elemente zu einer Menge zu vereinigen". And there
is no reason why anybody with some knowledge of ZFC should reject
that, since in ZFC everything is a set, even the elements resulting of
this choice.

Again you try to pull down the discussion to your nitpicking level in
order to avoid the recognition that only countably many elements can
be chosen by anybody including Gods.
