    What's the fuss about? The store belongs to MS. If someone spreads malware via it, MS will try to undo its damage. As developers will be able to install their own unsigned apps on their PCs, it's very likely that you can repack your app and install it again via your own id even if MS banned it.

    Remember: AV-Tools do the same today. They delete files/programs you might still need. You reconfigure your av-tool to skip a folder or to skip afile and you're done - it's nearly the same.

    Hopefully the store and metro apps, will be the only walled garden in windows 8. We will see.
