Absent Immunities

I personally read those as hints at Maiarin-ness.

Not likely. The ring was inert to Tom Bombadil. Gandalf feared its effects on himself.

No one has yet suggested here that Bombadil is the embodiment of Eru, but that idea is also on the table. Eru, beyond even the Valar, is the most egregious example of a deity ignoring the pain and suffering of its creations, preferring to watch them dispassionately like one watches ants under a magnifying glass in the Sun. Through Bombadil, he was content to play his in own special area while watching the rest of the world burn.
