I dispute this. Indices aren't necessarily numeric (think of an A-Z
file), and I don't believe you are correct about the connotations of
indexable being numeric or sequence-like. Think of index cards.
With my maths background, I would expect that subscripts are (almost)
always numeric, e.g. x-subscript-i means the i-th x value, where i
is a natural number.
+0 on keeping unsubscriptable.
+1 on changing it to unidexable.
-1 on keeping the current misspelling.
