“They might not want to, but won’t have much of a choice if they want to continue their development paths.”

That depends on how fast the bilateral agreements can be put into place.

Further, I’d argue that bilateralism contains a rather substantial benefit; if the agreement seems to not be working as designed in the opinion of one (or both) of the parties, it can be discussed and renegotiated without having to involve and/or gauge the impact of the renegotiation on a dozen other counterparties.

A lack of flexibility increases risk in any agreement.
