The way I see it there is zero benefit for MorphOS for neither Sam 460 or X5000 (other than the said improvements of Quark that happened because of this and new graphics drivers that later can be used on x86). They are too limited, too expensive, have too few users. As a "HW path forward" for MorphOS (and OS4) they are a dead-end (the same goes for OS4 of course).
I dont think there are going to be many users buying new AmigaOne to run MorphOS only but at least OS4 users have now chance to get MorphOS for their hardware and MorphOS users have chance to buy new hardware.
It is not benefit for MorphOS per se but benefit to users.
