I.e. given two transseries representations for an analytic function, if both converge and so do their Faulhaber continuum sums, do those sums agree whenever both converge? It would be interesting to determine this, but I'm not sure what the proof would be like.

Another thing I've wondered about is, could there be some way to assign some sort of value to the divergent sums of Faulhaber coefficients given an arbitrary power series of nonzero convergence radius as input?

Failing the Faulhaber method, could there be some other way to define continuum sum that agrees with it but covers a lot more ground?
