A53 is THE subway sequence, and it was one of the original sequences
in the database in 1964.

It is one of the first sequences that people
ask about  when they hear about the OEIS.

It has appeared in many books,
and it would of course be accepted today.

Right from the start, one of the explictly stated goals of the OEIS was to
help people solve IQ tests.
