The difference is not a question of visuals but of semantics.  Cue clefs
are for _cues_, material from other instruments quoted as reference.
They don't override the regular clef.

I don't see much of a difference here, and of course you can reduce the
size of non-cue clefs further.  It just would be a bad idea to do so,
but then LilyPond will usually also make it possible to cater to bad
