I think the reasoning is that:
- not many people (relatively speaking) want extra bases (so, quantities
are lower, shelf space gets wasted on products with low turnover, etc.)

The extra base was very useful when the first one failed.

- people who want more, can *afford* to pay more (for the convenience
of having interchangeable handsets)

These ARE interchangeable. I bought another set of the same model.

Be careful running multiple bases concurrently. Some may not like this.

I never did. The second base was to replace the first one when it failed.
