"These plans shall be recorded in Software Installation Plan(s)

I call this a conditional plural. (Well, I have to call it
something.) I've never seen any mention, comment, or complaint about
this construction, so I might be the only person in the world who
doesn't like it. This contrivance is awkward and impossible to use
consistently throughout a document. Logically, it should read as

"These plans shall be recorded in a() Software Installation Plan(s)

This, of course, is laughable. Any opinion(s)(.)(?)(!)

lfc (Just hanging around on a beautiful Saturday morning waiting for
his *S*M*E* when he should be on a mountain.)
