Considering how big of a technological leap there was between the second and third gen games, I really didn't have a problem that we couldn't transfer Pokemon over. Even if they did decide to give us the option to send our Pokemon to the 3rd gen, they would've have to been given a random ability and nature, and those that had high IV's in G/S/C would be considered average at best with the overhaul.
All in all, while it would've been nice to theoretically have Pokemon from Red and Blue be useable on the fifth gen games, I understand the challenges they would've faced to try and make it possible. Plus, getting FireRed and LeafGreen because of it is more than a fair trade off.
