I'd argue that's the most important part of this update, because it is converting the filesystem from HFS+ to APFS in place. That's Apple's future filesystem, that future features and security improvements will depend upon.

In the process of upgrading right now - but I made sure to do a quick sync beforehand, because as an long time IT pro, the idea of an in-place filesystem upgrade makes me nervous even though I'm sure they tested the crap out of it :)
