In brief: Hard to see value

You would have no guarantee any other sperm would have a that or a similar mutation.
It could never survive the testing and be used to create a pregnancy if it were "good".The benefit of having so many sperm released during intercourse is the healthiest ones are able to swim faster and fertilize first.
