This jumps too short.

I would like to propose to give a mathematical definition
of the term 'sequence' -- and to enforce its use.

This would help in a hundred of thousands of similar
cases as the one you described and additionally in
many other cases to give unambiguousness,
uniqueness and simplicity.

Let me remark that such an approach has proved
valuable in quite a large portion of scientific literature.

Cheers Peter
