The issue I can see already is that those bits just look like they're floating there for no reason. Yeah they're close to the bush, but they're really disjointed. If anything is going to be added back onto the top sides it'll have more substance than that so it all feels like one piece instead of a piece with some little bits floating around it. Actually, one of the reasons I left those off was because they didn't look like they did much for the design overall. It looked to me like the super complex shading on the bush everywhere else was the star of the show, which is part of what inspired the diamond shapes on each section. Here's a good comparison shot for the original and new bushes.
