>But the fact remains that if most members of a species have a particular characteristic, then that characteristic must have served that species well in the past.<
Hmmmmmmm! Most humans have female genitalia. Does that really mean that the species would benefit if those that don't have them did? Seems to me it would die out pretty swiftly!
If we take social insects such as bees and ants, the vast majority are drones or workers etc. Just a few are queens. So are the queens a liability? Same conclusion.
