I forgot the basics and about measurable uncountable sets, I will edit the answer. Cheers!

comment Concept of "eventually almost surely" as an artefact of measure-theoretic axioms?
If I go at developing an alternative alone, my result could easily be ridiculed, misunderstood and not accepted at any conference where measure theory is ingrained. Information doesn't travel perfectly well. There is got to be a less risky way for new axioms to take over.

Both valid points which I didn't think of myself.

comment Properties of MaxEnt posterior distribution for a die with prescribed average
So in his equation $(40)$, not all $P(N_1, N_2, \dots, N_6)$ are equal.

comment Properties of MaxEnt posterior distribution for a die with prescribed average
His table 1 departs from MaxEnt solution because MaxEnt assumes all outcomes (represented as infinite strings of $1 \dots 6$) are equally likely, not all frequences $(N_1, N_2, N_3, N_4, N_5, N_6)$. "Problem" is only a problem if one doesn't follow MaxEnt derivation, found in Chapter 9 of Jayne's book.

comment Properties of MaxEnt posterior distribution for a die with prescribed average
If mean is $6$ MaxEnt results in $(0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)$ because number of throws, $N$, was taken to be $\infty$. MaxEnt is the limitting distribution as the number of throws goes to $\infty$.
