Not sure where the "mods need support" line comes from, given that theres like 6 billion huge mods that work just fine without.. ehm, dedicated support...

Granted you gotta edit the game files directly but i'd rather do that than suffer any limitations in their planned mod-support. Also theres already mod-support in a sense, given that theres mod-loaders abound that even allow access to different api's (so already superior to anything an official mod support could even do).
The only reason there are big successful mods right now is because a group of people (The Minecraft Coder Pack team) is dedicated to de-obfuscating and generally unfucking the obfuscated code. If that wasn't happening, you wouldn't see nearly as many people bothering with it. Support would come in the context of them not having to expend so much effort just to get things workable for modders.
