Chipp's guess was correct, less than four months later:
Apple Reverses Course On In-App Subscriptions
Thursday June 9, 2011 2:55 am PDT by Jordan Golson
Apple has quietly changed its guidelines on the pricing of
In-App Subscriptions on the App Store. There are no longer
any requirements that a subscription be the "same price or
less than it is offered outside the app". There are no
longer any guidelines about price at all. Apple also removed
the requirement that external subscriptions must be also
offered as an in-app purchase.
Content providers may offer In-App subscriptions at whatever
price they wish and they are not required to offer an in-app
subscription simply because they sell a subscription outside
the App Store as well
Each of the last two years we've seen disruptive iOS license terms
rolled out late winter only to be reversed in summer.
What will happen this coming winter, and how many days will it last?
