Developers Could Make Games Look Better On 3DS

An interesting report over on IGN states that developers making games for Nintendo's 3DS handheld could make games that look better than what we've seen on the platform, if they ditch the 3D element: Here's a snippet:
"...could theoretically use the extra processing power for additional texture passes and more complex object and environment geometry, or even up a framerate from 30 frames per second to 60".
Which is technically true, given that games using 3D are more or less producing the same visuals, twice to create the 3D image. If the game was made with only one set of visuals, they could double the quality...

Would developers dare bypass the selling point of the 3DS...?
