And how do you think these serious breeders started their craft? I guarantee vast majority started with pet shop bettas, realized how fun and rewarding an experience it was, refined their breeding techniques with each brood and took their craft to another level.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the "mutt" variety is healthier than the too inbred betta - much like dogs & cats.

Right. They'll start with petstore bettas and then, like you said, take it to a higher level.
