Yagi performance is a function
of boom length, not the number of elements.

There are limits to this generalization and it all depends on your definition of performance. Two elements on a 34' boom (for 20M) will not have good gain or F/R. With three elements you can get good gain (>9.4 dBi) or good F/R (>20 dB), but not at the same time. Your statement is correct if you are only discussing the difference between four or five elements (maybe six also, but I can't think of a good reason to do that).
