Knowing when to add and when not to add requires a sense of what the writer is trying to express. One writer may use commas, and one writer won't use commas. It all depends on expressive style. Bottom line: provide the options. It's descriptively accurate, not to mention empowers the learner.
    So you would prefer they were written with nonrestrictive relative clauses?
