According to Intellectual Property Watch,

"In an October 15 speech, the Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Jonathan Dudas, vowed that the U.S. government will “fight” proposals that aim to “fundamentally change the WIPO charter and philosophy” away from its current focus on the promotion of intellectual property."

No surprises there but the strength of the comments suggest that the adoption of the development agenda by WIPO has caused some ripples.
