WRONG! The limitation is based on on having only FINITELY MANY FISONS.
Or, alternatively, having a largest FISON.

WM's principle hold ONLY if there is either a finite set of FISONs or a
largest FISON in the list, but fails if either condition fails.

OUTSIDE of WM's wild weird world of WMytheology, there is no need to
drop it.
What goes on inside of WM's wild weird world of WMytheology, only WM
can say.
