They need in-game notifications for when friends come online, playing Mario Kart 8 for a good hour and then exiting the game to the main menu only to find a friend was sending messages asking to play MK8, awesome, would have been nice to receive this notifications in-game so I knew about it, way to go Nintendo, can be fixed with a simple update though.

That's something I take so much for granted on other systems that I wouldn't call it almost getting it right; it's rather expected these days.

I'm sure if you asked them about it they would ask you to "please understand".
Stop. Posting. On the Wii Board. You're really this close away from a Suspension. - CyricZ

They don't want to interrupt the game experience. It's not a bad argument, but it's not a good one.
The problem with trolls is that you can't logic with them. The same goes for idiots.

Yeah this is the argument I was kinda expecting but I figured someone could come up with something else

They could easily put an option to disable in-game notifications to "preserve the gaming experience."

Right. Sounds a little like the "we didn't include online multiplayer because we know local multiplayer is the best!" excuse.

Out of touch.

Yeah, I used that for disabling certain things on my last gen consoles.
