I was looking for subscripted variables to conveniently extend notation 
for things such as points determining a polynomial, and so on. Formulas 
to do this kind of thing appear in all the math refererences with 
subscripted variables, and I think it's the most natural notation. 
We're not really interested in an array of points, just the individual 
points, in this case. It's simply a more uncluttered notation.
