It would be more of a mistake to have the device delayed for developers
for another 3-6 months because they can't get the system to work because
it's too complicated with two different types of microwave coming into
the same device.  My suspicion is that you would be complaining about
that too, but which would you be complaining about more - this or that?

For what it's worth I am imagining just that situation for my application.
