Its probably a short-lived mistake...

However, Apple often uses its ultra-loyal fan base as 'development mules' to further push the market in the direction they want; and often succeed!

I.E. flash to HTML5, HD-DVD > Bluray (failed at this one), Itunes purchases to be played on non apple devices (just recently gave up and allowed an owner to play a song on what they want), etc...
