R. David Murray added the comment:

It is correct English as written.  If you said just 'most cases', it would be ambiguous (most cases of using...something not quite clear from context, it could be range, or looping, or...), whereas if you said 'such cases', that would be wrong, since not all cases where you could use range and an index are served by using enumerate.  'most such' correctly refers specifically to the preceding example, and qualifies it that not all such cases can use enumerate.  (See what I did there? :)
