If your house is already built and you are doing the job then your answer is no. Even though it became NEC (National Electric Code) in 2008, this is only called by municipality or state, not nationwide. If you are doing this then you can change them as you want. If you hire an electrician to do it and it is local code, you might have to change more than you want. hat's because when an electrician, plumber or other professional tradesmen, they have to bring your house up to code. How much up to code I don't know. The prices are cheap and the the biggest cost would be paying the labor if you hire this job out. If you splash a lot where your sink is or if the prices are close, then I would use the weather-resistant GFCI's. Both @Steven and @Tester101 raise good valid points as well.
EDIT I ffound this here
Section 406.11 in the 2008 NEC reads, “406.11 Tamper-Resistant Receptacles in Dwelling Units. In areas specified in 210.52, all 125-volt, 15- and 20-ampere receptacles shall be listed tamper-resistant receptacles.” Based on the new text, tamper-resistant, 15- and 20-ampere, 125-volt receptacles must be installed for all specified areas in 210.52, covering such receptacles in kitchens, family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, parlors, libraries, dens, sunrooms, bedrooms, recreation rooms, or similar rooms or areas of dwelling unit. The receptacles required for those areas specified in Section 210.52 must be tamper-resistant, and in addition, other receptacles not specifically listed in 210.52 now are required to be tamper-resistant.
In addition, based on Section 210.52(C)(5), “receptacle outlets rendered not readily accessible by appliances fastened in place, appliance garages, sinks, or range tops (as covered in 210.52(C)(1), Exception), or appliances occupying dedicated space,” such as a dishwasher with the receptacle installed behind the appliance shall not be considered as required outlets but are required to be tamper-resistant based on this new text.
It really depends on who's doing the calling and how they view the last part of the above quote.
