I do not see this happening until they allow business to take authorship rather than a specific individual.
Authorship is about content, not about businesses.
Still, there are plenty of businesses that have jumped on the authorship bandwagon--sometimes in ways that are ludicrous, such as the hotel booking site that stuck authorship markup on a vast number of boilerplate hotel pages a while back. "Authorship abuse" is likely to be a bigger annoyance for Google than lack of interest by businesses.
