I always think of random effects a way of estimating for each group a separate intercept in terms of a deviation from the intercept reported in the main table by -xtreg, re-. (These intercepts aren't estimated directly, but are represented as a distribution.) Given this way of thinking about a random effects model, I would be very reluctant to suppress the intercept.
