I don't think any of us are happy about the contortions we increasingly 
need to go through to get apps into the app stores or out to the public. 
Keeping up with Apple is even harder for the LC team.

But Apple sells privacy and safety as its primary distinctive feature. 
There are instances where an app was decompiled, malware added, and 
recompiled using the original author's name. That not only endangers the 
public, but also trashes the developer's reputation through no fault of 
their own.

Adding a verification token is a way to make that harder. Google has a 
different system in place, currently optional but highly encouraged, which 
does the same thing since they've found several instances of this kind of 
malware insertion.
