You're right. The clinical evidence for benefits from human supplimentation of Vitamin E is weak, and it some cases it appears counterproductive.

Me too (more questions than answers on this). Like you said above, since there is need for omega 3 supplementation, there may be a need for Vit. E too. I'm not running to the supplement bandwagon, but I am not pushing it away without giving it some serious thought.
