Array variables practically imply arithmetic evaluation, amd this is a
shell feature which is rather difficult to use correctly because
compatibility with other shell encourages both recursive evaluation
and access to the full shell language in a few corners.

If you need array variables, it's likely that the script has grown so
complex that switching to another language is a good idea.
