While we're talking about clarifying things, I noticed that the rules don't actually define what a motion is. It's just defined by de facto usage. We may want to remedy that. Being allowed to motion for anything gets around a lot of the other issues with the rules not being robust enough. For examp...

If you can 'reinterpret' sets like that, can't you just reinterpret the line [0,1) as an unbounded sequence of real numbers? It really does seem like the distance relation defined on the sets is integral to your definition of quantity. I suppose you could build the natural numbers by pulling discret...

What is the quantity of the set of natural numbers?
