Blocking the shop channel update

Everyone knows, the #1 reason most people update the wii is to get that stupid shopping channel to work. Today I ran a small test, I took shop channel v16 and opened it up in showmiiwads. I then patched the version # to v54321. Guess what? The outdated shop channel worked just fine, at least it loaded and I could browse everything. I did not attempt to buy anything, but it seems that by doing this people could avoid the update prompt from Nintendo indefinably. Then only update the channel when there was a real need to do so. This seems like it would work with any title, be it ios, channel, system menu, etc.
