I doubt it. First off, it's Nintendo, so they'll make it have a tremendous advantage, but only if you use a DSi, which means no GBA port.
Whilst I agree with this, this principle only works on killer apps. As much as I like Golden Sun, by no means is it a console shifter.
Pokemon on the other hand, would surprise me immensely if it didn't have DSi exclusivity.
Also, the data transfer transferred everything directly into GS 2, levels, exp, djinn, items and so on. Since you're using different characters in 3, that data would be irrelevant and useless.
You used different characters in GS2, but it was still applicable.
Of course, it could unlock extra features in 3 for having completed data, but GS 2 is so old (relatively) that there's no point in Nintendo trying to sell it again.
It's not about shifting old units, it's about fan service and futureproofing.
