Yep, we seldom setup where/when wind is a problem, but sometimes the wind changes on us. And large tarps or hammock socks where you can block the wind from getting to the underquilt can solve that issue. But not everyone has one of those or carries them in all cases. In the situation where you have an option of one end being more exposed to possible wind, you would want the head end to be exposed if all other things were equal and you were worried about trying to stay warm.
