Great example. I completely agree.
My feeling is that mathematicians use this principle of leaving out
some of the quantifiers and putting some others in the wrong place
as a cultural entry barrier to protect their field from newbies.
Well, not "use", but "willingly tolerate", perhaps.
(I do have a diploma in mathematics, from a German university.)
