It seems even Jobs knows his limits sometimes - from the MonoTouch 
mailing list:

    I emailed Steve Jobs earlier today, and either he (or some
    delegate) replied, and the answers were pretty clear.

    Paraphrasing his reply: "The new provision is ONLY intended
    to apply to applications distributed through the app store.

But that's just an email from a developer, and I've found no formal 
confirmation from Apple either way.

And course if it's true, it's only true as of 11:06AM on 10 May 2010. 
Who knows what the license will say by noon...
