It may not be as simple as just setting the clock to nominal value, there may be hardware interlocks that are linked to that speed limit (memory space adressing…).

GC games probably are not programmed as PC games, as they are hardware-dedicated, using full blown Wii's GPU may not result in higher FPS.
There already are some timing issues when modifiing output methods on the GC…

I'd say, if you want the real hardware enhanced experience, run SWISS on the real hardware, if you want enhancements beyond hardware limits, just run Dolphin on a beefy PC.
