Yes, I know.
But concrete kernel versions may have issues with some specific hardware
piece (mostly wifi cards -newer cards may not be included in older
kernels-) and for a user standpoint, it's easier to know that the machine
(or the device) they are intended to buy it just works out-of-the-box
with a Debian release, the one they are thinking to install.
I mean, users do not usually care about kernels versions or atheros
chipsets, so having a HCL would be a nice, time-saving and very useful
(also for companies) tool.
