That's not as bad I would have expected. The crystal is most likely another one than I'm using, but an acceptable price if you just need a few microcontrollers.

The TH crystals are quite big for a "small" design, but they are tempting, as the price is quite good. But with that being said, SMD crystals are just nice in a smaller design. As you mentioned, normal component availability, price and standards just yells ISP header.

The new design is pretty much done, so an ISP header is available for those who wanna use it.
