A doctor that can become a survivor isn't fully useless. In fact, it's fairly powerful: if they ever end up in mylo or lylo, they can convert at that moment, claim, and start voting random players until there's a scum quickhammer for the mafia+survivor win. So the game balances as though the role were scum, even though it can win with town if town does well.

I don't think it's bastard on that player themself: they know from the start that helping town and helping scum are both potentially viable paths to victory, and are fully informed in making their choice. However, it may be somewhat bastard on the rest of the players because it's hard to guess and effectively impossible to balance around.
