Is there any reason not to use thumb-2 for building armeabi-v7a code to get
the reduced binary size?

There is a good overview and discussion of the topic here:
https://www.quora.com/What-are-advantages-and-disadvantages-of-Thumb-instruction-set-over-ARM-32-bit-instructions

The first Quora answer explains the instruction sets, and the second Quora
answer
suggests that there are few if any disadvantages of Thumb-2 over ARM (32).

In my opinion Thumb2 is the ONLY time arm got anything right in their
instruction sets but do not be fooled into thinking thumb is more space
efficient than arm or that thubm2 is more space efficient than arm or that
any of them execute code faster than any other.
The choice between ARM and Thumb2 basically boils down to this. Will you
be 100% self contained and make no calls to external libraries? If so pick
either and be done. If not... you need to know when to call external
functions with a bl and when to call them with a blx - if you are coding in
C I think the compiler should know which branch to use.
