I've already pointed out that you can put whatever you want onto *your* 
iPad or *your* iPhone - you just need an Apple Developer account, a 
provisioning profile and away you go. There are also numerous ways to 
share such apps with your friends and colleagues, or indeed anyone you 
like (beta test codes etc. - or just sending them the built app bundle 
which they can then resign to install themselves through Xcode onto 
their own devices).

For organisations, it is also bypass the *consumer* AppStore - by having 
an organisation wide AppStore. Again, these come with no review or 
restrictions.

The restrictions are about what your app is allowed to do when you 
submit to the *Consumer* Apple App Store - i.e. when you are making your 
app potentially available to millions of people.

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
