Case for Apple to design server CPU?

I'm wondering whether people think it would be worth it for Apple to develop a server CPU for internal use only? Currently iCloud storage uses capacity that is purchased from other cloud providers. But why should Apple have its own cloud? The way I see it:

1) not diverting dollars to support their competition like Microsoft, Google and Amazon

2) they could create a cloud that is well integrated into iOS and macOS tools, so developers of applications that need additional computational resources in the cloud could access them seamlessly

3) using the same ISA in their cloud as in the phones, tablets and (future?) Macs would make it easy for developers to write to "the cloud" using Xcode tools, even if the competition moved to ARM64 there would be differences and extra work depending on implementation details

4) the ability for applications needing a lot of computing power to easily farm things off to a secure cloud would avoid concerns about the highest performing x86 machines outperforming the Mac (assuming Apple can't keep increasing speed to the point where they take the performance lead over full turbo i9 CPUs)

5) would help support development of higher end cores and uncore features, so they don't have to shoehorn the SoC blocks used in the phones into the entire Mac product line all the way through the Pro

6) would help Apple achieve its goal of further diversifying its revenue sources from hardware alone to recurring revenue from services
