If by homogeneity you mean a decreased dynamic range, I think the answer is no. I believe it raises the exposure overall. The fire will be very bright, possibly blown out, but other areas will be lighter and properly exposed. Black areas will come up as well. AX2000 does not have BLACK STRETCH so you cannot tell it to crush the blacks, unfortunately.
As always, the answer is to experiment and see if it works for you.
HDR-AX2000 / HXR-NX5 (2010).

..... but if SPOTLIGHT raises the exposure overall, I think the face of a guy close to bonfire will became overexposed. Is it so? Thanks for your precious news.

No, the reason you would use SPOTLIGHT is that the bright light of the bonfire would cause AE to underexpose the face or anything else in the frame. SPOTLIGHT compensates for this.
