I do not know what to say. The notation sum{(2,3) in E} is just
mathematically incorrect. It can be written in other, correct ways,
say, sum{(i,j) in E: i = 2 and j = 3} or (if (2,3) in E then ...), so
in this case it is reasonable to follow the principle "Entia non sunt
multiplicanda praeter necessitatem" :)
