Did Agilent ever intend making a 4-receiver 8753?

I opened my 8753ES the other day to check the battery, but opened the top when the CPU board was underneath! I soon worked out where the CPU was, and found the battery was fine. 

But while the top was open, I peered inside and noticed 3 identical modules side-by-side with a single RF connector on them. But there was a slot for a 4th one, but it was empty. I did not spend any time trying to work out what these 3 modules were, but I think there was a good chance they were the 3 receivers. 

It made me wonder if Agilent were intending adding a 4th receiver to a later 8753, but never bothered. It just seemed a bit odd to have space for 4 modules, but only 3 filled.
