It *would* be a way to allow for more magic to be displayed.

I think that weighs heavily on Odin's mind these days--resolving differences among the realms in more ways than just battle.

Well, in the books (as I understand), The Beyonder finds existence as we know it novel, and is trying out various experiences just to experience them. So he wanders through Thor's world and thinks, "I wonder how a revenge dynamic works". So he changes Algrim and then wanders off, not to be seen again. Presumably he looks in on events at some point to see how it works out with Kurse.

So in that telling of the story, That Which Changed Algrim is not an ongoing threat. But they possibly could make it so in the film. (I don't know if this is something that Surtur or his agent might try to pull off, for example.) It could up the tension, which would be good.
