Our plans include only the Si4721 since the price difference is
neglectable (and depends on number of units, i.e. 50% Si4705 +
50% Si4721 may be more expensive than 100% Si4721).

The only reason is that in some regions it may not be allowed
to operate a (low power) FM transmitter. So the Si4705 is
just a fallback.
