It gives an edge to people who pay attention. If you've ever played a mix that has both 2-7 and A-5 draw lowball you will see people make huge mistakes in these games over and over ("oh, I forgot A is high in this one, ****"). In fact I guess the *creation* of a lot of these variants was for the same reason, you start playing 2-7 against people who are used to A-5 and you get a bit of an edge over them, their intuition is no good.
+1 to adding hi/lo with no Q though, or with a declare, or both.
