Just that using or not using plural suffixes is usually a matter of 
choice. They're nearly ALWAYS redundant to use, because they're 
optional, but you can use them anyway. It's not true that wherever you 
CAN remove plural markers you should. I think there are times where not 
using plural markers is nicer, but that's not the same thing as saying 
you SHOULD do it.

*pe'vIl mu'qaDmey tIbach!* (TKW) Sure, I COULD say *pe'vIl mu'qaD 
tIbach,* but this is a proverb, so I'll go with the established form.
