Have Xbox games on demand or the PS3 games in the Playstation Store been gold mines for Microsoft and Sony? It's not that apparent.

Does 90% of the population own a 360 or PS3?

If they make an account system and have sales I would buy a ton of VC games. So far I've only bought a few RPGs and redeemed Club Nintendo rewards.

Total Virtual Console games sold as of December 31, 2007: over 10 million

I would say yes it is a goldmine.

People will buy millions of games from a library of over thousands on multiple different consoles if it is just one click away. Especially if they just released drivers for their current Wii U controllers.

Even if the only games available at launch were NES/SNES/N64/Wii/GB/GBA/DS Nintendo IPs, people would have a huge library of quality games to choose from. Plus, the only thing that would damage their pockets is hosting the servers.
