The thing with Friend Codes is they're tied to a console (like a MAC address), you end up having to re-add all those friend codes over again if you lose or break your system. Luckilly, it lets you link your Nintendo Network ID, so hopefully all the friends already added on that account and Miiverse carries over. I think it's because Miiverse is not (yet) there, which is like a forum that allowed us to simply search/add usernames, that we end up with the bare Friend Codes system.
I suggest we wait for more details before the internet explodes (ope, too late).
