I don't see having a lot of bonus spells based on your patron being a thing if you can also pick your spell list. If you have a Winter Patron and that gives you Primal then that already gives you all the cold spells so getting Cone of Cold and Eclipse Burst as bonus spells is useless.
Besides what Temperans said, I tend to see most people wanting multiple spell lists because they want their spell list to match their patron. Primal for a Fey Patron, Divine for a Devil Patron, and so on and so forth. I may have interpreted this incorrectly to be what everyone arguing for multi lists wants. If your patron is giving you your spell list, and the the first lesson gives you a substantial group of bonus spells, AND the Hexes and Familiars get massively improved, then sure, I would accept that.
But would Paizo do that? For all the reasons Temperans stated, I would be astonished.
