Anybody know why "Nānā!" without an "E" in front is OK, but the "E" is necessary in "E mālama kālā!"?

My theory is that when saying something as an exclamation, rather than a command/instruction, abbreviating it (without E) is OK. "E nānā i ke kīwī" is proper with the E, but if your just yelling, "Look!" it can be just "Nānā!"
