I have worked with Sun then Intel app stores and they only allow you to install 
from their servers and have a lot of rules regarding packaging.

Also, I heard Apple wants the gui to look a certain way and never to crash and 
the developers have to be registered with Apple. This has been a hot topic on 
the internet recently.

No, this is forbidden. They don't want flash, so they don't want
anything that download something that can be run afterwards.
