Pecan propagation

Why do virtually all the Internet sites that offer suggestions for growing pecans from seed expect you to eventually graft a varietal onto the seedling? There is a vague reference to sterility as the reason for grafting. Is sterility such a problem? Or is the problem one of lack of genetic trueness to the parent of the seed? Otherwise, should I expect these 'from seed' seedlings to produce healthy ornamental or commercial value trees when mature? Who do you trust to sell seed true to variety?
