$100/year? What if you have say a company of 5 people whose salaries get paid by the virtue of your app. One noreply email from Apple and Google and their jobs and your $1m/yr company is over? This has only become possible with the invention of curated app stores. You cannot even be fired from a normal job in the US instantly by a noreply email.

It's extreme but it's not entirely new. A new version of an operating system or Internet service you depend on could make your app impossible or infeasible.

True, but something changing and your app not running, is different than them just blocking you from using it at all.

You can fix an app if the platform changes, but you can't put an app on a platform if the platform won't let you.
