I have a very similar setup, with Aleph 3's and Quad ESL 63's. I tried it first with 8' Stealth Ultimate Ribbons and then with 18" lengths of the same cable. My experience: it is VERY MUCH WORTHWHILE to go for the shorter length! The 18" cables brought me MUCH closer to the music. I thought it was very good before, and maybe it was by any reasonable standard. But this was one more reminder of the audiophile mantra, "It can always get better."
