I think there should be a means of declaring *all* subscripted symbols
to be symbols.

The Notation package is fantastic but requires manual declarations for
each and every subscripted variable.  That gets tedious and
error-prone.

If there were some way to declare all subscripted symbols as
"Symbolized" then those which are generated on the fly by a program
would also work.

As I recall Symbolize required input to be generated from a special
palette, which is rather hard to do from inside a program.
