My wife is not as tall as I am, and has joint issues which make it hard to reach over her head. We would want a remote even in a 21'. If it were just me, I wouldn't bother. This is definitely a case of personal situations determining choices.
For us, the remote could be wired and permanently mounted on the wall. That might even be better: one less battery to replace!
