I mean, if you're going to pick numbers, the obvious choices to add would be 7 and 14. (Fios DVRs allow those numbers.)
But the real question is why is there a limited list of choices at all? A single byte of storage can represent any number up to 256, so why not just allow the user to pick any number they want up to some maximum?
256 might confuse the masses, so maybe the max should be 99. Two number button presses on the remote and you're done.
99 was the Replay max, iirc. (But then Replay was always much more about flexibility and pleasing its subscribers than imposing a philosophy and pleasing content providers as TiVo tries to do.)
