I agree. I'd leave it out, unless the beer really needs a thickener before bottling. I like a full bodied stout, but even so I wouldn't like a "thick" stout if that makes sense.
My son uses a bit of malto-dextine in his root beer. I guess he must have made a mistake and used a bit too much, and he made root beer jell-o. He poured it and it went "glug gloop, glug gloop" out of the bottle. It was really gross! Ever since then, I've been squeamish about using it.
You won't need the MD anyway with that grain bill, but if you really need it for body later it can be added later.
