but it's not like it's unfeasible considering that the Xbox One is able to do it.

I don't know about that.
The Cell architecture of PS3 was much more complicated than X360's.
And Phill Spencer even said that he didn't think it was possible to do BC on XBO, and was surprised when their engineers figured it out.
Sony's Shuhei Yoshida also said he didn't think BC for 360 games was possible on XBO:

"It was surprising, I didn't think it was possible. There must be lots of engineering effort. They talked about 100 games, but what kind of games will be included? Is it smaller games or big games? We don't know. "

And for the possibility of BC on PS4 he said this:

"PS3 is such a unique architecture, and some games made use of SPUs very well, It's going to be super challenging to do so. I never say never, but we have no plans. "

I'd love to see PS3 BC on PS4, but I don't expect it to happen.
