    Just wondering if in the future this will open a possibility of save editing and maybe even getting a game to boot to sd cards instead of a flash card. Probably too early to tell, but I'm just going to put it out there to make sure.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    It is encrypted, so no.

    The backup saves are encrypted and are the same as normal 3DS saves, so no. It's just as if you copied your save to your computer (no difference in protection).
    Nintendo just made it automatic in case saves get corrupted or whatnot and the user didn't back the save up then the user won't lose their data.

    So with backup saves could I effectively have multiple save games by switching out and restoring saves, or even give saves to a friend? (Say in the case he started animal crossing on my download copy and bought his own later)

    Impossible
    All saves are "locked" to their respective system. In other words, your saves will only work on your 3ds.
