I think the point that's being made is illustrated by recent upgrades
to amd64 buster.

linux-image-4.19.0-16-amd64_4.19.181-1_amd64.deb was issued Mar27,
then linux-image-4.19.0-17-amd64_4.19.194-1_amd64.deb Jun19.

So if by Jun22 one was happy with the latter, then you're suggesting
one remove the former.

Now on Jun23, linux-image-4.19.0-17-amd64_4.19.194-2_amd64.deb becomes
available. When you run upgrade, this kernel will overwrite the Jun19
version. If Jun23 hits a snag when booting, you've got no version 16
to fall back on.
