I'm not sure I see how bundler would address this, but couldn't it be
addressed by breaking the stuff you need from rspec-rails in the
development environment into a separate rspec-rails-dev gem or
something like that.

Breaking up gems seems to have been a theme in the transition from
Rails 2 -> Rails 3.
