It could be because the impedance method for measuring BF% found in scales is pretty inaccurate. Though the concerns you bring up regarding BMI are legit, in the long run it is probably a better choice for this application and will work for the majority of people who would use Wii Fit anyway. Just my opinion.
On another note, while I found the parody video funny I would imagine the people who made it have never done yoga if they think it is just "standing around doing nothing".
And a final note; people complaining about kids not going out to play etc....have you folks never heard of inclement weather or the fact that it gets dark at night?
