All I'd really like is a more well-defined policy - that's all that's
needed here I think. After all, if one is going to use terms in a policy
then it seems wise that those terms be explicitly defined.

What Google is trying to do is 100% clear - it is also very easy to 
in a completely unambiguous way. e.g.

"Apps submitted to the Google Play Store must not download any files
which allow the app to access more Android APIs which it could at the
point it was submitted to the Google Play Store."

This covers all possible cases as far as I can see - and covers cases
which their current policy does not (as worded, at least).

If you can get an email of someone to whom I can 'whinge' at, then I'll
do some suitable 'whinging' ;)

Warmest Regards,
