It's basically a non-issue for timing receivers, because as you say
you never see abov 12-13 SV's under even the best conditions.
The one application where a 20 channel receiver "could" make a
difference is in cold start performance as you have more channels to
search with. This is always a hot button issue with navigation
systems, such as in your car, etc.
For the most part the subject is almost moot because the search
algorithms of the newer receivers work much better. They come up
plenty fast with 12 channels.

Those are Glonass + GPS receivers.
