Yes, but the purpose of this thread is not to discuss what the potential downsides of grandfathering is. Your objection would apply even if my proposal isn't implemented.
If a user applies for membership a non-grandfathered group that is "full" (i.e. already has as many members as the owner is willing to pay for), here's what happens:
Grandfathering isn't going to go away, so yes, if a user is not picky and would join any existing grandfathered group, then that option would be open to him. However, my experience with the groups that I'm in is that people who become members of those groups specifically want to become members of **those** groups. If there are a dozen cat group and all the user wants is to share cat photos, then "any group will do", but a lot of groups are quite specialised and people don't really have alternatives to join.
(The ability to cap premium groups has been suggested but has not been confirmed or commented on by Mark.)
