I took a look at the request and I read it as saying that RDAP would
cost money, and if it turns out that the final RDAP spec is different,
they'll have to spend even more money. I didn't see any compelling
technical issues. Needless to say, registries deeply resent anything
that requires them to spend money, particularly the new gTLDs whose
business plans are imploding.

We should say in as few words as possible that access to WHOIS
information important for security, even in its current less than
ideal state, RDAP provides better access, and not having it will
negatively affect DNS users. Considering that nearly all registries
share a handful of back ends, the actual cost per registry will be
small since a back end should only have to do RDAP once and it'll work
for all their TLRs.
