I do see it being potentially suitable

While 3d's normally just a gimmick I felt Avatar did show how it can be used to help increase an audiences perception of a location. The locations themselves were rather OTT(although with high enough rainfall you do get large waterfalls on plateau mountains such as Angel Falls) and the story didnt have a vast amount of depth but Cameron did seem to understand how to film 3d to achieve the above.

Tolkien was obviously very concerned with location and giving the reader a strong perception of space/time and Jackson spent alot of time trying to achieve at least the former of those with LOTR so I can see why he'd be keen to try something new with The Hobbit.

The problem I spose though could be that because Avatar was largely CG they didnt need to lug around a 3d camara to multiple locations where as The Hobbit is likely to use alot more live action footage and real location work.
