I think Apple may have decided to enforce an untenable rule, simply so it can be used as a reasonably large concession when the antitrust machinery slides into gear.

If you are going to be required to give up ground - you might as well grab all the ground you can prior to any punitive action.

That sounds like the man who beat his head against the wall; because it felt so good when he quit.

I know what you mean - this scenario sounds quite backwards, but I'm really having quite a lot of trouble understanding why Apple has decided to go ahead with this.

If they honestly think they can get away with it, I think this might be a signal that they're losing touch with their community.
