Local connection with old DS models?

I haven't seen anything about this anywhere, so I don't know if anyone will know the answer to this, but it's worth a shot. Is the 3DS capable of communicating locally with old DS models, for co-op play, etc. on old DS games?

I hope so. Its a nice feature that was absent from the DS. I was disappointed when I had to switch my pokemon games into my GBA and SP to trade and battle.

I assume it uses the exact same wireless communication.. though hopefully the wi-fi adapter will be wireless N or whatever the newest wifi routers support.

It's not like you could do GBA-to-DS.
