And it's really usually not that big of a deal anyway. I successfully ran a 4.3 kernel on a 4.7 system. I could only make a few problems occur even when trying. top and ps worked just fine. Besides, when you installworld, you should be booting straight to single user mode, so not much is going on to cause problems in installworld. Of course don't try to do anything else when world and kernel are out of sync. Problems come in especially when trying to run a 3.x kernel on a 4.x system and some other cases.
