I just removed that one.

If you have multi-character sub/super-scripts often it will be two keystrokes (either {->{#INS} and another to go past the } -- or -- { and } if you don't have that keybinding). On the other hand if you usually have just one character, e.g., x^2 or x_i, you are right. I've messed that up way too often so having ^->^{#INS}, etc., doesn't bother me.

The overwhelming majority of subscripts I use in everyday writing are of the single character variety. If I mess up, it is easy to spot. As they say, your mileage will most vary. :-)
