A fella in the forums has had an app rejected from that:
Personally, it seems an understandable position from a phone maker:
phones are small enough as it is, why use less of the screen than is there?
It's not a platform thing, it's a quality thing. If you want your user
to feel good about running your app on the phone they choose, why not
take a few minutes to resize the screen elements so that can happen?
