The caudal would be improved but not perfect, so you'd continue to selectively breed until you have your HMCTPK. Unfortunately it'd require culling, culling and more culling.

True about the culling, selective breeding is when I wish bettas had smaller spawns. Oh well, even without a full 180 spread I think they're stunners.
