There are other benefits to using a smaller chorded keyboard though, namely with RSI prevention and general comfort. That's kind of what I was going for with the QWERTY layout for Georgi. Rather then using chording for briefs and phonetic phrasing, it's just used for simple mapping with QMK. Makes for a compact and ergonomic board. Check out the layout I've linked below.

Weirdly, though developed for Georgi the lightweight springs have found themselves back into Gergo and GergoPlex as users have reported it helping with their RSI flareups (compared to traditional mechs)
