You mightn't notice that a kernel has *some* problems for a while, if
you don't use all the features all the time.  Later on, when you have
some problem, it can be handy to have more than one alternative to test
with.

Occasionally there'll be a very quick release of a kernel update shortly
after another kernel update.  That could end up deleting the only good
kernel.
