Cheaper? Debatable. But at least not using variable geometry on the main turbo makes it more robust. Variable geometry turbos are finicky things, and more vulnerable to coking and hydraulic oil-feed failures than many people are comfortable with.

I'd have thought a simple supercharger for twin-charging would be better... but having a standalone electric supercharger would make for much simpler plumbing and installation than twin-charging.
