    My guess is that it's an appeasement to Apple.

    Why would Apple want to keep Android phones safe?

    It not about keeping Android phones safe but it would means unlike Apple iPhone Android users could go around the restriction. That means Adroid phones could not adversite that they could side load apps.

    That being said so far Ares was rooted pretty quickly and that completely by-pass that limitation.
