    It does matter for the above listed reasons, and likely more.

      The point of the HWE packages is to offer both the kernel and xorg, for those who need them. You might find it useless, but there are people with different needs.

        Like what? (If both normal kernel package and HWE are "the newest kernel").

          As far as I know, the kernels coming through the update system are more conservative, avoiding big changes and possible regressions. The HWE kernels are newer and they pose incompatibility issues, which is why they have to be installed manually by the more knowledgeable people - who can handle getting out of the potential issues.
