There's no point. It just wouldn't be unbootable, that's all. :p

Debian and Ubuntu both boot into the newest kernel by default. What's the point
of installing a security update to the kernel if you're just going to boot into

That said, there's KSplice Uptrack[0] which allows for kernel updates without
the downtime related to rebooting.
