Their requirements seem reasonable. Let's see how long is the turn-around time for approval process.

I don't mean to seem argumentative here, and am just genuinely curious. But what is meant by "reasonable" in this context? Of the 5 criterion listed, 2 are objective:
- They are written specifically for webOS and not delivered through the browser.
- They leverage webOS platform and device capabilities, for example, notifications, multitasking/background processing, location services, accelerometer.

The remaining ones are completely subjective. The 5th could potentially be made objective by providing additional information as to what "acceptable" and "excessive" mean in Palm's environment.

That's what a small but loyal fanbase will do... generate a higher percent of satisfied users.
