It's not just that. Someone may need to sell their console but buy it again at a later date. Another person may need to replace a broken console. Imagine how you'd feel when you learn that the games you bought with your Nintendo Network Account are tied to the console you bought them on. Wanting to log into your account at a friend's house is a minor annoyance compared to what I just mentioned.
Granted there should be an easier way to do it, and I think the article mentions they might enable doing so at a later date via firmaware, but surely if you call them up and explain the situation they will initiate a transfer process. Again sure, that is a pain, but I cannot see how they would not do it if you call them up. So it is an annoyance, but not the end of the world.
Also I do have to wonder just how often the scenario you mention above will happen, especially initially. I do not see all that many people purchasing multiple WiiU's. By the time this would become a more standard scenario, hopefully they have the patch out for it.

I'm not a "kid" however yes for me that's a big feature i make use of on the Xbox 360.
At Uni we had a gaming night each week, everyone brought there profile / saves on a memory stick and we would play a different game each week.
Even now i will get together with some mates every couple of weeks and have a gaming session, as i have two 360's people just bring there profile round and were good to go. No effort to get a 4 player gaming session going with 2x people on each console. Plus along as one profile on each console owns the DLC that content can be used when the profile is signed in to live, regardless of if it was purchased on that console or not.
I can see how that would not bother a lot of people, however i personally think features like that are great if you game with friends.
Sorry, guess I should have said young adults. With that said, what kid means to me now definitely does not mean what it once did to me, but I could imagine being 21 or so and being referred to as a kid as offensive, I am sure I would not have liked it, but that I was including those in there young 20's. Believe me, I wish I was a kid again.
