Any update on the wiring and possible switch possibilities.?

It would make your steering wheel wiring issue go away... of course you'd want to wire the transmitter buttons to something nicer.
Hope it helps.
Edit: Just picked this one up off ebay. Now the long wait for overseas shipping....
Just one concern with those, the batteries for the remote switches. If you disassemble and bury in the steering wheel, you'll have to tear apart the wheel everytime you need to switch the batteries out. Do the remotes each have their own on/off switch or do they go in a standby mode?
I figured you would retrofit some paddle shifter and remove the guts from the controller and swap it in. If the battery thing is a big issue I can look up what resistor you would need to drop from 12v to 3.3v (i think that is what the battery uses.. maybe 5v) so you could rob juice from somewhere in the steering wheel
Power Supply: 1 x 23A -12V battery (included, can be used for 12 months)
NM, shouldn't be hard to hardwire

Just to clarify. We're not talking about the receiver as it takes 12v directly wired from the car. In contrast, the transmitter uses a 3v button cell (prob a 2032 or 2025). Again, I'm not worried about this as it would prob last a few yrs, and I'll make it so the batt is easily replaceable.
Why not just try to adapt the Maxima's paddle shifters to the Juke's steering column?
