  • I'm also in favor of singularity, mainly because pluralization is not generally and uniformly possible:

    head vs. heads: simple
    foot vs. feet: not as simple

    Here, no generalized form is possible, thus it can't be done without explicit naming.
    That of course costs time as you need to think about it every time you encounter it, especially if your mother tongue isn't english.
