While it doesn't seem like a bad idea at first thought, I like the idea of backwards compatibility... and it has precedence in that the Genesis had backwards compatibility with a hardware add-on... I don't think it makes much business sense when we live in an age of endless ports to current systems.  Also, the game pad... how is the Switch going to emulate that?  You'd be tethered to a disc drive.  It makes more sense to just buy a Wii U for dirt cheap when they are on clearance.  Furthermore, is the Switch even powerful enough or capable of emulating the Wii U?  I doubt it.  Just because it can handle ports easily doesn't translate into easy emulation at full speed.
