You may have inferred that, but I didn't imply it.
Sorry, you didn't imply it, you stated it as fact: "...favor commerce over information, and that would lead to poorer search results for users". Why is it that more commercial sites in SERPs automatically means lower quality?
Google's search results would end up being skewed in favor of commercial sites when all other factors were equal
But you are not saying why you are against it even if it's going to improve the SERPs for users?
