Can I use the a letter, without a subscript to represent a set, when the elements are represented by the same letter with a subscript?

I mean, does the notation below looks ok?

I would argue against it, although it is not technically incorrect. There's no fixed convention, but lower case letters for sets look a bit goofy to me. What about using \(T_Z\) for the set? Does that cause any problems.
