There’s a useful analogy to notation choices in technical papers in the linked article:
I have refereed and reject manuscripts written like that first example program. Badly done ones are often written by first year graduate students, who assume way too much knowledge on the part of the reader. Such students often like making up elaborate notation, too.
You need to be a real big shot, or have really important technical results to get away with this kind of writing.
