Nintendo, willing to change?

Could this be a glimmer of hope, or just plain PR bull?

I actually took some time the other day to 'shout out' on Nintendo's website. My message was concerning friend codes and how detrimental they would be to the online experience. Now, one thing I can say is that Nintendo is very good at returning emails. I was pretty impressed the first time I contacted them this way and was greeted by yet another email days later, saying thank you. Anyways, here is their latest response concerning the dreaded friend code system...

Hello and thank you for contacting Nintendo,
