I could see the compilation route as well.
Probably would have grabbed at least DKC if I had known about them being taken down.
There is no licensing issues with the DKC games though. Nintendo owns everything about them. I've been told this first hand. It's more likely they were taken down because they look completely awful now.
And no, there is no Wii U eShop thread...yet.
