As long as this method of fertilisation isn't the thin end of the wedge leading to designer babies, I don't have a problem with it.

It isn't anything to do with designer babies.

If you involve a third person in the process you could, in theory, choose someone who has the characteristics you want in a child, apparently. As science progresses it is possible that this could be refined so parents could 'shop' for the right gene mix!

I'm not sure that mitochondrial DNA can be used in this way

I am no scientist that is true, but I did read, somewhere on-line, in the past few days, it might be possible.
