Given that virtually all of the "popular" applications are ignorant of 
the underlying infrastructure I don't see this happening.  Its simply 
too expensive to build something and not get it in front of as many 
eyeballs as possible even (perhaps especially) if your application is 
free (ad supported).  We've only seen the large scale shift to 
applications really being mobile aware in the last few years.  Anyone 
else remember when WAP was supposed to (and didn't) make a huge splash 
on mobile web use?
