Have you been or do you expect to be contacted by US lawmakers regarding this?

Ultimately, what do you think Apple's motivation is? Controlling the user experience (which includes security), or monetization? I think they've always argued the former. Are you suggesting it's the latter?

Hi! Inviting myself to the conversation. I think it's the latter: Apple is very assertive of their pricing leverage (premium hardware prices + steep app store fees). I think complaints come from the lack of alternatives. You can buy another phone, the app store has no substitute.

Maybe i sound like a broken record, but maybe there's some organizing to do, probably a syndicate of developers to lobby for their position

They should be forbidden from blocking links to how to buy from the app At the very least, they should not be allowed to prevent apps that don't use Apple's payment API
