They haven't said (Although the producer back at E3 said that they were considering it), but it would seem a natural.

 

Unfortunately though, Nintendo's online integration even today sometimes leaves a bit to be desired. So while I'm not expecting this feature to be absent, it still wouldn't surprise me if levels can't be uploaded and downloaded from a central server.

They allowed downloading of levels in games before, like Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii (I believe) and currently with Smash Wii U.  I would imagine they would do so with Mario Maker.

 

The issue, as always, is in how Nintendo makes sure people don't recreate entire Mario games in it and upload them for anyone to get for "free."

I suspect that the capabilities will be too limited here to recreate much. So that likely won't be much of an issue. 

 

Assuming that sharing is possible, I look forward to checking out people's attempts at Super Mario Bros. in the various graphical styles and its arcade cousin, Vs. Super Mario Bros (Which remains exclusive to arcades three decades after its release).

 

The level layouts of both would appear to be within reach of recreating with this editor, where as even just something like the wind effect and poison mushrooms in The Lost Levels has no equivalent here that we've seen.

That would be pretty neat. As a middle- or high-schooler, this would have been awesome. Back in my day, all we had were pirated copies of EA's Monster Construction Kit, which usually wouldn't load! And we liked it!
