Some further thoughts..

Say you had a 3 el dual axis steppir.. it would have 5 positioners (3 
element lengths, 2 spacings)..

The question would be whether a 5 adjustable element, with fixed 
spacings, could get the same performance.

The fixed boom, 5 element antenna would be mechanically simpler.
