The "standard" math language allows you to formulate
"statements" like +=E0, i.e. syntactic mess.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a language where all statements
you can make are syntactically meaningful? With cheating,
it's possible - just sort all meaningful statements over
a finite alphabet and call them "1", "2", "3",... :-)
Think of the advantage for sci.math :-)))

I thought of a version which doesn't need a lookup-table,
of course.
