The issue here is whether some list can be so complete that no diagonal
can be constructed that is not already in it.

The answer, conceded above, is a resounding "NO"!

Which establishes, as required, that there is no surjection from the set
of all naturals to the set of all such listable sequences.

Thus WM concedes the proof of Cantor's diagonal argument.
