Subject: Estimated # of checkmate positions?

Can anyone perhaps estimate the number of legal positions where one king is
checkmated?
Obviously the number would be much less than the number of legal positions
(perhaps 1/5000 of all legal positions), but I still imagine it would be a very
large number.
Could these positions some how, in the very distant future, have some sort of
practical purpose for computer chess?
