I heard it from some random person I was having passive conversation to. Never heard of it before or since. Has anyone else heard of this?

I guess if it breaks? Or you already have a 3DS and want a Wii-u so you save money by not buying the pad?

Nintendo said before launch they intended 3DS to be used as a controller.

I'll bet you that you will never be able to buy a Wii U where the Gamepad is optional.

Why would you want to?
Only 3DS functionality I know of is hitching it to your U for the eshop, no point you can just tether to you wi-fi & its done.
