Could this be what Nintendo was thinking of? (Dual analog/cpad rumors)

You make good and valid points but I still think no matter how you look at it such "attachable" analog stick would be only an avalanche of misunderstandings and troubles.

Oh, absolutely. There's plenty of room for Nintendo to get things wrong here, and it seems like there's no obvious way for them to get it right. I'm really just answering your question of why would they want a second analogue stick - so I've only posted the positive reasons for having one. There's negative as well, and if (big if) Nintendo are actually considering doing anything like this, they will need to think it through thoroughly, or else they'll end up with a bit of a mess.
