If you use it for 1% of the time, I'd say yes. But not every D800 has the problem. So you should try some real pictures and see if you have an issue with the left focus point. Why should you have have a mostly functioning camera when you can have a fully functional one?
If you left AF point (or any AF point, for that matter) does not result in sharp focus of the subject behind the AF point, your multi-point AF system is miscalibrated or there is a hardware problem. Why would you pay $3,000 for a defective camera?

Although it might not currently impact your photography, you should probably test, and if necessary, have Nikon correct the issue within the warranty period. You never know what your future photography may require and it could be an issue should you later wish to sell the camera.

Agree, and I did the test under indoor light (Tungsten) so AF accuracy is not that good. I will repeat the test with better sunlight and I will expect even more accuracy and probably better results (greener).
