      It's going to depend on the style of your campaign, I think. If the PCs have hero points, and only the major villains have them among the NPCs, its going to give the PCs a significant edge over most people simply because they're 'the heroes'. This is fine in a cinematic style campaign, but if that sort of gaming holds no interest for you, and you want a more gritty and 'realistic' campaign, then hero points either don't exist (unlikely) or they represent something that is, taking into account relative power levels of characters and so on, just as available to NPCs as it is to PCs.
