What are the odds of N releasing a Wii U 64gig (or better) console later on?

Xbox 360 started out with like 8-20 gigs or something like that.
They now have 350gig consoles. (or was it 320 gigs?)

What are the odds Nintendo does the same thing a year or 2 from now?

17%.
They didn't do it with the Wii, and with the external storage solution, it would be rather redundant.

720p up-scaled doesn't look bad at all.
1080p does look better, but not by much. - knightimex

They'll probably have one eventually. You'd probably be better off buying an SD card though.

So if Nintendo changed the name of the Wii - U, would they be pulling a U-Wii?

Their whole reasoning for making the storage small was the cut down on making the console expensive due to plummeting storage prices. It's far cheaper to just leave the memory where it is and just let people upgrade their own memory

Pretty high, both Sony & MS comes out with larger HDD models reasonably often.

100%.

Whether they upgrade the amount of storage space or not, it's virtually certain that they'll release a different version of the console, at some point.

They didn't have multiple models of the Wii either (until towards the end where they replaced the old model with a new model that removed GameCube compatibility, but they still only manufactured one model at a time). Yet they have two models of the Wii U on day 1. As such, I don't think looking back at what they did with the Wii provides an extremely useful precedent. Perhaps we should be thinking more in terms of the 3DS or the 360 and PS3.

They'll probably just make their own 128GB SD card or something...

Releasing a model revision at all wasn't the topic at hand, though. And, again, external storage makes even the 32GB model redundant. And, yet again, they don't really have a history of it.

Didn't know that swapping memory cards and making it a different colour equals a new model now.

The whole point of external storage is having the option to choose how much storage you need at a fair price. The internal storage is flash memory, not a HDD btw.
