COMMENTS

All integers n >= 4 may trivially be expressed using only the digits 0 and 1 in three different bases: 2, n1 (as '11') and n (as '10'). The numbers in this sequence cannot be expressed using only 0 and 1 in any other base.
The only positive integers that may be expressed using only the digits 0 and 1 in fewer than three different bases are 2 and 3, for which the values {2, n1, n} are not all distinct or are not all valid bases.
An equivalent definition: For each term a(n) of this sequence, there are at most three integers k >= 2 for which a(n) is a sum of distinct nonnegative integer powers of k.

EXAMPLE

5 is a term of the sequence, because 5 may be expressed using only the digits 0 and 1 in precisely three different bases: 2, 4 and 5 (5 is '12' in base 3).
9 is not a term of the sequence, because 9 can be expressed using only the digits 0 and 1 in four different bases: 2, 3, 8, 9 (9 is '100' in base 3).
