There is a very subtle difference between the two.
One obvious difference is in the case of side effects (either temporary or long-term, e.g., "out-of-tree drivers depending on foobar semantics will no longer work"). In that situation the purpose is one thing, and the impact presumably includes that thing, but it also includes the side effects: i.e., the impact is a superset of the purpose (in such cases).
