Except that Gobwin Knob exhausted its supply of gems somehow, so even if Erfworld were infinitely deep, there seems to be a limit to how deeply Erfworlders can mine.
I agree that if Erfworld is flat and has cliffs all around the edges then it is also probably bottomless. It would be very strange if digging theoretically deep enough down into Erfworld would poke a hole in the bottom and let you fall out into whatever lies beyond the bounds of Erfworld. On the other hand a flat Erfworld is also pretty strange around the edges, so I prefer to think that Erfworld is probably a toroid.

We've never seen any hint of disbanding being survivable. On the contrary disbanding seems to be a kind of death in Erfworld. I strongly suspect that if it were possible to survive then we would have been told about it before it became this critically important. Hiding that information and then springing it upon us as a surprise to allow Jillian to survive her own disbanding seems like a dirty trick.
