The Wall Street Journal has an article today about Apple’s plans for sideloading in the EU:

Apple’s approach to the EU law will help ensure the company maintains close oversight of apps downloaded outside the App Store, a process known as sideloading. The company will give itself the ability to review each app downloaded outside of its App Store. Apple also plans to collect fees from developers that offer downloads outside of the App Store, said people familiar with the company’s plans.

No good. Reviewing apps distributed outside the store defeats the purpose of sideloading.
