I think it'll be very interesting to see people distributing and replicating CouchApps. This could allow us to potentially skip completely the AppStore and have our own CouchAppStore.

For now we are aiming at a use case where developers would embed Couchbase in their app and sell it in the App Store. I kinda doubt Apple would approve for sale (free?) a generic CouchApp player. But still there is lots to gain from being able to sell your CouchApps in the App Store.

That violates the Apple developer ToS. See what happened to Scratch on the iPad.

Yeah, this would be nice, but it is also totally understandable that it is not allowed. "Just" adding reliable sync to native iOS apps and single-package CouchApps is cool enough :)
