We've seen so many Pokemon fans asking for Pokemon Snap on Wii U or remakes of Ruby and Sapphire.
I think you are somewhat confused. Sure there are some people asking for Pokémon Snap on the Wii U, MANY fans are asking for Pokémon Snap 2 for Wii U or 3DS, aka a SEQUEL...not a remake.
But yes, there are a lot of people who want R/S/E remakes...I'm not one of those. I like the games, of course, and love the Pokémon series but think it will be overkill and unnecessary. I'd rather they focus all their efforts of Pokémon X and Y.
Plus, there were a multitude of reasons to remake R/B/Y and G/S/C, but very little reasons to remake R/S/E apart from fans wanting it. Looking at the graphics from Gen I to Gen III, you can see that Gen I and II were ones that needed updating as they are quite out of date. While Gen III graphics may not be as impressive as graphics now, they are decent enough to not need a remake if all they are going to give is updated graphics. While Gen I and Gen II remakes gave a lot more.
Remaking Gen I allowed the generation to gain a lot of features that have been made since the originals. Examples are natures, abilities, genders, hold items, new types (steel for example on Magnemite) and more. They also removed issues from the original (MissingNo anyone?) and added a joke for the truck. Also, you may note that the UK, as far as I am aware, never got Mew for the original Gen I games. The remake was the point when they first gave Europe Mew, allowing us to finish the original Pokédex, something that couldn't really be done in the original. They didn't count Mew to complete the Pokédex, but I'm sure many people did.
Sevii Islands added a lot more then you state. Firstly, this is the place where you can catch many national dex pokémon. Again, features from Gen II and Gen III were added in this way, such as breeding and Trainer tower (slightly different but same as battle tower). Also, Island 9? It was Deoxys home and they distributed the ticket to go there and catch him. They also added a new part of the team rocket story. And that story leads you to the ability to trade pokémon to Gen III, including Deoxys, allowing to complete the Hoenn Pokédex (as long as they bought Pokémon Channel and got Jirachi) and nearly complete the National Pokédex (bar Celebi of course). Which leads to the actual main reason (IMO) for the remakes of G/S/C.
Just like Mew, we never had a Celebi event in our country. Which meant we missed out on the Celebi time travelling story (although I'm sure all fans knew everything that happened in this story before playing HG/SS...I know I did). HG/SS marked the first time Celebi was distributed in our country. Of course it was distributed for D/P/Pt too, but this way we actually got to play the story behind the event. Also, they did a Jirachi event with the Pokéwalker route, allowing people who didn't buy Pokémon Channel (although I did) to get Jirachi.
Therefore, putting the remakes together with the non-remakes allowed people to FULLY complete the National Pokédex, which was out of reach before they were made.
Of course fan input had a big factor as they could have just as easily made all the other Pokémon available after completing the main game, and distributed the missing event pokémon on the normal games. But this way, people got to also fully complete the normal (non-national) pokédex on each game and we finally got to play the Celebi story.
So, IMO, both FR/LG and HG/SS were necessary. R/S/E remakes would be cool, but it's unnecessary. And I'm definitely not one of the people begging for it. I'd rather have Snap 2, Stadium 3 and Colosseum/XD sequel.
