There might be some games that a tricky but, I am sure they will still work (I know you wont see every game from the 360 play on the Xbox one).
That was always the trick with consoles, use a weaker CPU but, USE heavy GPUS and audio systems to make up for it (the SNES was a key one in this aspect). The GPU and the sound in the Xbox one is, like I said 8-10 years newer, again, not even breaking a sweat...
In the tech world, I would even give someone I hate a computer that slow from that age. Think about it.
Even though I know from a tech hardware standpoint, if the software is done right (And this is Microsoft we are talking about, spare no expense to get it right), there is no question why it would not run and run flawlessly.
I'm not buying it. I think they're doing this remotely, via a VM or something similar. I see no way they are actually emulating the hardware locally.
We'll see when it lands in our hands though. I suspect if you disable your internet access, bye bye feature.

No. Not a chance in a heck, you're completely misunderstanding how this works.
