There are two angles to commercial feasibility: one is whether implementing 
RDAP is feasible; RDAP is a generic protocol that can be tailored very 
differently by each use case, and being from one of the ccTLDs that implemented 
it (see https://rdap.registro.br/domain/nic.br) and from one of NIR/RIRs that 
implemented it (see https://rdap.registro.br/ip/, I can tell you 
that they are very different. The other angle is whether implementing RDAP with 
the ICANN RDAP profile for gTLDs is commercially feasible; the later is the one 
being challenged, not the former.
