No reason to not allow this.
It is perfectly acceptable, considering the Nintendo Switch is not a Wii U.

PS4 cannot play PS3 unless you pay for it
XBone cannot play most of 360 games,

They can't use the trick they used with the Wii and WiiU for BC anymore since the Switch's processor architecture is wildly different from their previous systems, and it's far too weak the emulate the WiiU using software.

I do think it's bull that your VC purchases can't carry over though.

Here's a novel idea, TC. If you want to play a Wii U game, play on your Wii U. If you want to play a Switch game, play on your Switch.
Yes, it's appaling that your Wii U purchases don't transfer over, but it's pretty clear that Nintendo only cares about bleeding its consumers dry, not showing any kind of goodwill or common decency.
Even my most peaceful and calm posts are somehow designed to belittle those that disagree with me even a little, get used to it~!

Karma.

Wii U guys jumped all over Sony and MS when their systems launched with nonBC because of the new hardware. Now you feel their pain.

agreed, while i wouldnt expect BC in a system so wildly different i would still love to be able to play my VC games on it.

it was annoying on wiiu that the VC didnt transfer over since quite a few of my VC games i wanted to play in gamepad mode but they werent available on wiiu VC.

Every nintendo console has had some sort of BC with exception of earlier ones. Really, the wii u had BC, so should the switch. Heck, even the NSES had BC with gameboy for crying out loud

Right, just like how the Game Cube had BC with the GBA.

You have heard of gifts right? Sometimes people have no idea what they're getting. 

Everyone didn't choose to buy a Wii U. 

In short, stop please.

It's an unreasonable expectation to have. The Switch can't run Wii U games natively and it's also too weak to emulate them, so saying "there's no reason not to allow this" is inappropriate.

Why wouldn't it be? I believe I explained pretty well why having zero software run from previous systems, even if it's VC software, has no excuse.

VC not transferring over is shameful though.

Well, so far there's no VC at all. I do agree though that I found the upgrade fee that Nintendo implemented for the Wii -> Wii U transition pretty disgusting.

Pikmin 3 was perfectly playable on the gamepad only. It would work fine.

So like DS VC? That's the only example of two screens being condensed to one.

The guy was asking about playing Wii U games on the switch. 
You port the game over.
Put one screen on the TV - and one screen on the gamepad.

Seriously - I can't believe you had to make me clarify this.

Actually it is worse than that, PS1 and PS2 games bought on PSN store from PS3, PSP and PS Vita are not available on the PS4.

This is why PC digital is superior than any console digital:

PC Digital games = Can be played on any new PC and PC part upgrade.

Console Digital = Games restricted to the console originally bought and nothing else.

Basically PC you can upgrade or buy new PC you don't lose ability to play the games bought, while console you sell old console you lose ability to play those games.

To make it worse console gives no option to sell or trade games, even though they don't work on new console.

PC games once bought it is available on any new PC and PC part.

In my opinion console should do the same, once you buy a game on old console it should be available on new console. There shouldn't be any issue of games not availalbe or having to repurchase to play on new console.

Edit

If console can't do that then give console gamers choice to sell or trade digital games, that way it is fair.
