Well, Vine is rated 12+ in App Store. “Infrequent/Mild Sexual Content or Nudity”. I'm not sure what are ramifications if an application violates assigned ratings.

On a second thought, “Infrequent/Mild” is vague enough: does slash mean “or”?

I'd imagine it's pulled ASAP. None of the major app store providers allow porn on their stores, do they?

They allow browsers, but those are: "You must be at least 17 years old to download this app."

Does it make sense that an app. with the sole purpose of sharing user-submitted videos would somehow be devoid of any questionable/suggestive content? Isn't it kinda Apple's fault for insisting that apps conform to their age guidelines, when those apps involve user-submitted videos? I mean...who lets their 12- to 17-year-old use an app like Vine? Do they honestly believe nothing bad might come of that?
