However if I create foo-hwbringup-image.bbappend, it gets ignored.

What are the rules with appending included recipes?

bbappends do not append arbitrary files, only recipes (and in this case, the inclusion treats them as an arbitrary file). They do not apply to anything included or required, only
the recipe itself. So you'll need to bbappend every recipe that includes <> in this case.
What's the argument against requires picking up any .bbappends?
I agree with the original poster - this seems only natural and
would be extremely useful, not necessitating jumping through
hoops like "IMAGE_FEATURES", etc.
