It is very relevant. AgCl and AgBr have an important difference in
their Ag-AgX electrode potential. They also have different ksp values
and different ranges of pAg they often operate at. These differences
give rise to different reactivity or susceptibility to a lot of
things, including reactions when the emulsion comes in contact with
watercolor paper. Chlorobromide emulsions are a lot more fastidious.
