There is a significantly large number of certified developers. I personally have three developer accounts for three separate efforts. If I was willing, I could risk burning one of those accounts. Not that I’m going to do so, just saying, yes, the business amd the developer would have to be in on it.

By the sounds of it, please correct me if I am wrong, no iStore app can link to a website for content regardless of the status of the organization that stands behind the site? Hmmmm, I still have a lot to learn in this space. 

Just saying that you need to really read the published rules and follow them. When there is an exception needed, you need to really sell your case to Apple and they might go for it, but assume they won’t. Not all app ideas can be apps.

Apple developer site makes you agree to their terms and conditions. Thats what you want to reread with a very critical ete.
