Particularly, indexed >variables like i are ok. I would say that using i to be an indexed variable is something that needs to be done with care. When a value is assigned such as i=0, i now has a down value. But for an ordinary variable x doing x = 1 does not create a down value. This difference means using i to be and indexed variable will result in different behavior than using an ordinary variable in some cases.
