Specifying a model with n entities tracked requires specifying mentioning O ( n 2 ) variable names. The resulting models aren’t algebraic objects and manipulating them can be ad hoc. The notation hides fundamental unificatication of linear models. The same model written with different variables is in a useful sense the same model, but won’t show up that way. Makes separation of concerns tricky: evaluating a model requires substituting O ( n ) individual values into variables. This implies some separate form of specifying model inputs -
