WhatsApp will block it for sure. It's like something alien taking advantage of your service, with no compensation at all for it. Nobody wants to give away its products or services, and WhatsApp has the right to expect some kind of income for their service. If they allow unofficial third party clients, they loose control of it, and anybody in their position would not like that.
Good initiative, though.
On the contrary, Microsoft never did anything (that I'm aware of) against those third party Messenger clients. Some years later, they let it die, even after conquering the crown of instant messaging, something that had many, many contenders back in the day. To me, it's unexplicable.
