Why do the rewards from mobile games sound more important? Sad

Likely because they are trying to promote the Hell out of it, and push people into making purchases, especially hesitant customers.

My Nintendo is a huge disappointment, just another avenue to push digital purchases (while still collecting user information like Club Nintendo did but through smartphones instead of surveys). Buy a few digital games and get a "discount" on another, which I can only assume is some paltry amount. I'd rather just get the 10% back that was offered with their DDP so I could actually choose myself where that discount is going. Platinum Points are digital only goods, phone wallpapers or 3DS themes. I get information about games/dlc pushed to me days after I've read it online too, as well as the opportunity to promote Nintendo's stuff to my friends.
This doesn't seem like something aimed at people who buy physical and the information from it will be useless to loyal fans so I will not be making an account.

How is it a disappointment when you haven't even used it yet? And it'll be free to sign up, so you choosing not to is just like sticking your fingers in your ears and going "lalalala".

I said why it was a disappointment right after I wrote "disappointment".
Not signing up is because I have no interest in digital games and rewards, it's not at all like sticking my fingers in my ears. You're just silly for thinking that.

Do we have clarity yet on whether Nintendo Account = NNID? Or rather does it obsolete/absorb the NNID?

Link your NNID to your Nintendo Account. I don't think much has been said besides that.
So far, to me, it looks like: Nintendo Account is the one that pushes notifications/offers, My Nintendo is the rewards program, and is linked to your Nintendo Account (which is also linked to your NNID) so they know what digital games you bought.

How far does My Nintendo go back for account info.? Does it remember all of your pre-existing Wii purchases, for example?

Good question. Only thing I really see so far is it having access to your NNID purchase/account history. Furthermore, there hasn't been anything suggesting you'll be able to authorize/deauthorize hardware that can play your digital games. There hasn't been any mention of Wii digital purchases at all. Sad

And yet, that's going to be one of the major factors in my decision to buy the next system.

I have a lot of digital Wii purchases that I don't want to send into the nether because Nintendo won't upgrade their content.

Same here. Sad Really, really frustrating situation. I've written them about it before, and I'll be writing them again. Don't really know that it'll do anything, but I've got to try. Definitely write them about your discontent, too.
