If this mechanism forces a higher turnover rate in the alpha positions, I think it could effectively increase the likelihood/rate of random mutations to spur separate evolutionary paths in isolated populations. Maybe once a species develops social skills and tribalism, evolution can fast forward a little bit, if the conditions are right.

I dunno. Spitballing.
