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.
