4 vs 5 frame DIY poly nucs?

I have lots of leftover 50 mm (roughly 2") xps, and am looking to build some all-purpose stackable nucs.

Basically following these plans, but with a flat, flush fitting roof. I'll probably make a couple of medium boxes, but mainly deeps.

The question is how large to make them. Five frames gives me 25% extra comb for little additional materials. Then again, the whole point is to keep them small. Four frames is still 80% of a five framer, and I can always add boxes as required.

Anyone with thoughts or experience? I'm guessing the difference is large enough to kind of matter, but not enough to justify "stocking" both sizes.
