The "hq" setting is more about how the EQ shape won't cramp near the Nyquist frequency (as opposed to how they do in "eco" mode), especially when using high-frequency bands (not shelves). So if you don't care about your bands being perfectly symmetrical near Nyquist (if you use shelves for "high-end lift" for instance), you can get away with "eco" all the time. Or if you work at a higher sample rate in general.

But if you want the bands to be symmetrical near Nyquist, you'll want to mix that way and not just render that way. You'll notice the difference and it'll affect your mixing decisions.
That is a very good point!
