Default I have an extra ECU. Is it useless?

I had bearing failure on my 2015 STI and Subaru made me buy a new ECU in exchange for some goodwill credits. My old ECU was fine but had a tune on it hence the denial of full warranty payout. I flashed it back before they installed the new shortblock but is it just a paperweight now? Is it useful to have an extra ECU?

Department of Environmental Quality, they're the emissions regulators in some states.
