Well, you know, it is a step in the right direction.

Who knows what plans Nintendo has for the future? I mean, what we deem as obvious is not necessarily so for them: just look at how much time it took them to finally make mobile games.
Companies have sets of cultural values and habits which influence their actions and make it hard for them to do what we_perceive_ to be the right thing. But Nintendo's revenues were falling pretty steadily these past years so you can bet they were pretty nervous about not making mistakes.

Also, even the Atari Flashback was hacked to become capable of playing original cartridges so this one probably will be hacked similarly.
