I would want solid evidence of this.  Look into the Battle of
Westnoth fiasco -- not that I blame apple for this.  As far as I
know, their license agreement is clearly incompatible with the
GPL; it was certain Wesnoth developers who knowingly ignored that
and then got burned when their app was pulled.

Biggest obstacle: licensing, and AFAIK this is insurmountable
unless you have enough shares to force Apple to change their
policy.  Since their whole infrastructure is built around their
"walled garden", I think you'd need to own at least 30% of the
company's shares before you had any chance of forcing a policy
