It matters for the following reason. If you create an image via Nova in
Kilo (image proxy, snapshot, etc), that image is not accessible over
glance v2 (which is the default for glanceclient in the kilo timeframe).
It just explodes instead.

I'd consider this pretty critical failure of compatibility between v2
and v1 in glance. It also points at a missing set of test cases which is
to create images via 1 API and be able to access them over the other. I
don't know if that is in process or not, but it would be really good to
deliver those test cases as part of this work.
