 What's wrong with this?
 And you can even do multiple feetneet.
Why don't you type some body of text that takes up to 20 lines or so and then add some foot notes like that; it would look horrible or too long to hold most people's attention.
We could say to the people that want latex for setting nice maths what's wrong with, for example:
\ . . . . . . a(1-r^(n+1))
/ a*r^i = ---------------
--- . . . . . . . 1-r
it gets the job done doesn't it!?
