...maybe the flood are used as some sort of information gathering tool, maybe they collect DNA and any other info on the species they infect and then the forerunner may have extracted this knowledge and created other races...

While it's an interesting excercise to assign altruistic abilities to the Flood, it's difficult to imagine them as anything but a viral catastrophe. After all, they were never presented in a sympathetic light during the game. Or were they? Maybe Sean's on to something...
