Default OFA Excellent vs OFA hips?

Just a questions about hips...

I have read the OFA website as to the structural difference between the different rating for hips by OFA. However what I would like to know is the practical application.

In a dogs life, how much difference is there? Are dogs with fair hips much more likely to have him problems in old age? or is the Excellent vs Fair mainly a concern for passing on hip problems?

Thanks for any input
