On my Mac, there is no real difference between entering a cntrl- i and a[i] Both require 4 key strokes And since I have the front end set to display Traditional Notation, using true subscripts is less cluttered than a[i]. But your point about access (which I interpret as actually using subscripts in Mathematica computations) is quite valid which is why I use subscripts very rarely.
