Good one; not possible right now, I'll put it on the list. However, you can assign such sets to Indices for the purposes of evaluate: you can do

ex:= A_{a} A_{a};
rl:= [ A_{1} = 3, A_{5} = 6 ];
evaluate(ex, rl);

to get '45'.

(Note: evaluate currently only looks at the values argument of Indices, not at any Integer property attached to the indices).
