I can only ever speak from my own personal experience

Others may differ

Re: Can I cut this off

Rather than cut them off try stitch tacking them down that way you are not modifying by removal and if the loler inspector has a problem then you only have to pop the stitch and its back to normal its not adjustment or modification because the loops are still there just making it user friendly.
If you have a real problem with them then get in touch with edelrid and ask them the manufacturer is always right.

Why are they annoying you, out of interest!

I would suggest sell it whilst it's in good nick, and then get a tree motion.

Yes not life support,
Just record what you have done when and why,
