I agree it lines things up right horizontally. What I complained
about is that (at least in -ms) a separate EQ-EN pair for each
line introduces extra vertical space, so the sequence does not
look like a coherent whole. The matrix trick gives a better
display, but sacrifices any connection with ordinary math
syntax.  It makes no sense when read aloud.

When I try (the non-indented) version of this

        .S 14 16
        shortid ~ mark = ~ expression1
        longidentifier ~ lineup = ~ expression2

with 'groff -mm', it does exactly what I think you want.
