Raiders fans should be the ones who are angry about this IMO. if the niners are going to SC anyway then it doesn't matter. If it leaves more room in the budget for other things then its a win for the niners. I dont know the ins and outs of it all but i assume it'll be cheaper for the fans... Maybe we should ask the New Jersey Jets/Giants.
Also, the Raiders have a fierce fan base so maybe we will get an even better stadium!

Santa Clara is a 49er city...doubt they would want raider fans coming over.
They approved dual-usage as part of the vote.
And no, nothing would have to be scrapped. The only real change that would happen is that the Niners (and city) would make a s**tload more money.
Since the Niners are putting up the vast majority of the cost for the stadium, they would ask for a % of all Raider ticket sales. And the city gets 2x the visitors, which is a small businesses delight. Money money money.
