Well it's still not technically
possible; it's an approximation (and a pretty liberal one) because, as you mentioned, any displacement of the remote from the original point of calibration, be it in the dimension tilt or translation, will give a skewed set of coordinates for the Wii to draw from. Not to mention there's a pretty serious hardware-limited time lag of moving the cursor across the screen, whereas a lightgun's registration of a new coordinate is instantaneous.
