Of course they will. Just like any kind of differential access.

So the questions I think are:

1. Will there be differential access to whois data?

Answer: Yes, there is already that, although implemented in a clumsy way with whois/tcp/53 and much easier implemented with RDAP.

2. Do people want unlimited bulk address?

Answer: Of course they want to, even if that violates I do not know how many privacy legislations in the world, which in turn have lead to a business of lying, managing proxies and what not.

I.e. this is not an RDAP problem. The contrary, with RDAP we can implement in a more correct way what is already deployed...
