This is NOT a software limitation as far as i can tell
I'm running Jellybean 4.1 on my GNex and USB OTG works for me,it could be because i'm rooted
Same here, I think they have a hardware limitation. The only redeeming feature for Nexus 7 is that for people with NFC enabled phones, they can pretty much transfer everything on the fly to the tablet(selectively ofc). Low price tag and great HW being let down by Google's stringent "pushing" of the cloud!.

I am pretty sure it is related to the Kernel. Ofcourse GNex comes with a kernel that supports MHL and USB OTG by default.
