    So, you expect lots of programmers to have to have input methods that support a large set of sub-script characters for something as common as array indices? So, instead of MyArray[i] one would use MyArrayᵢ?

    Perhaps I've misunderstood what you're meaning.‎ If not, that doesn't sound at all nice.
