This is what you don't get, and you refuse to be taught:
There IS consensus: We all know that in different
situations, one handles 0^0 differently. You're "solution"
is to do nothing.

No, you've presented nothing that deals with 0^0. All of
your statements are about nonzero bases, so 0^0 is not
dealt with, it is simply ignored. I.e., you've done
