If they are moved to revision deletion alone, without suppression, then yes
there will be hundreds of people who suddenly have access.  As well, in certain
cases it will be necessary to track down and suppress log entries.  There are
also problems when the suppression was done on pages that were subsequently
deleted, because it will recreate those pages, and we have no idea how they're
going to come out.  In some cases, a lot of juggling went in to ensuring that
no oversightable content existed  in the ultimately-deleted page.  

If this is done in a methodical way by oversighters, then it makes sense;
creating a tool that allows oversighters to do this would be more reasonable
than an automated, unmonitored process that will suddenly return large amounts
of information to the publicly accessible revision table; on enwiki, we're
looking at about 10,000 oversighted edits.
