I share these concerns and indeed TfL has raised these as part of DfT's consultation.

TfL's response says:

It would be unacceptable for through Thameslink services on the Wimbledon Loop to be curtailed at Blackfriars without substantial mitigation, such as an increase in service frequency and serious consideration of some services continuing as through services.
