It wasn't really necessary to repeat yourself. The point was to demonstrate that the dreams do not necessarily have the same interpretation, just because similar symbolism was used; your opinion isn't relevant to that point.

Not impossible, exactly. No one of the Blood would ever marry property - property can only marry other property, and so'jhin, being at the top of the da'covale hierarchy, only marry other so'jhin - but Tuon is already married to Mat. If he become property by virtue of having gotten tattoos a la the drunken lord and lady, then of course she probably has the right to declare the marriage null and pretend as if it never happened. But would she? The development of her character strongly suggests that she would probably rather cut off her left arm. She wants Mat back, and she's starting to realize that she is in love with him. Then, of course, there is the conflict, because she would probably rather cut off her right arm than be married to property. The conflict is the important part, and it's not just present in Tuon's character, but in Mat's as well; he represents the ideal free man, despite his many experiences with subjugation throughout the series.
