Believe me, I'm one of the biggest film purists there is, but since TNG SD is already available on DVD, what would be the point of including them on a future remastered BD release? I wouldn't mind having it all in one convenient package, but it hardly seems essential.
Apparently it's to ensure that something like the whole debacle with George Lucas replacing all the effects in the original Star Wars movies and refusing to release copies with the original effects never happens. Although in that case, I'm pretty sure they might have done some other things that pissed off people, mostly adding in things to tie the movies closer to the prequels.
