Knuckles Chaotix is a very good game.

I'm still semi-surprised (but then again, not really) that Chaotix hasn't shown up... anywhere, actually. Not in Gems, and after that I thought the Virtual Console had a good chance, but so far no dice. Granted it'd be a bit awkward having the three button layout split by the Wiimote, but hey, Classic Controller.
On topic, I'll be getting SCD for the PC, though if I ever come into a tablet/iTouch, I'd likely get it again if only for the prospect of on-the-go play.

I liked it. Went and bought a 32x just to play that on the real hardware.

SA2 is a far more likely candidate for re-release, but it really hasn't aged well, and contains a lot of the issues with the Sonic franchise that SEGA have been trying to avoid for a while now. I think really, that with the release of SA1 on XBLA and PSN all that time ago, by this point they probably would have released it's sequel.
If they did re-release either, Chaotix doesn't have no where near the same fan base that SCD has to warrant a remaster in the same vein, and if the bluepoint port of SA1 is anything to base opinions on, any port of SA2 isn't going to be amazing. Nor would I expect it to be either.
TLDR: I wouldn't expect SA2, and especially Chaotix, and if they did arrive, there's a 90% chance that the ports won't be worth buying.
But I challenge SEGA to prove me wrong!

But emulation wouldn't be bad, it's very hard to play that nowadays, legally speaking.
This coming from someone that liked 32x's Chaotix.

Tails didn't appear in the original Sonic CD, either.
Also, this new version of Sonic CD even has a Sonic 2 mode that can be used from the beginning, so if Chaotix was done next, it could also have something like that.
