If a buyer's agent is going to recommend home inspectors to their client they should (and have a contractual obligation to) recommend the best inspectors, not the inspectors that pay the most.
Toward that end I have asked several of my REALTOR friends who are active in legislative and ethics matters to intercede on our behalf and end this practice... quietly.
I don't want to cause a big stink, I just want the home inspectors categories to be removed from Concierge programs.
