Linux Headers Installation

There's a minor ticket about explaining what the installation
commands in the Linux Headers installation do, and it occurred
to me that is it possible that there's a redundant step?
Here's the existing commands (with my comments for the
book inserted as well):
First ensure the source tree is completely clean:
Next, ensure all the required headers are complete and available:
Now here is where I don't really see the need for two commands:
make INSTALL_HDR_PATH=dest headers_install
cp -rv dest/include/* /usr/include
Couldn't we just use the command:
make INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/usr headers_install
and be done with it?
Pardon me if I'm missing the obvious, or I'm not doing my research.
