Better BBB Cape EEPROM?

The choice of 0x54 to 0x57 for the cape EEPROM I2C address is kind of annoying. It prevents the use of smaller pincount EEPROM devices since you must have an A2 pin that you can pull up.

I’ve found a few Microchip devices that have the address and part number correspond, but those appear to be only available directly from Microchip (read: large minimum quantity buy).

Anybody know of any EEPROM chips that would allow me to use smaller pincount devices on my capes?
