Apple iPhone to support web apps via browser, but no native app support for 3rd party developers?

Since developer’s initial dismay over the lack of support for 3rd party applications for the iPhone, Apple discussed support yesterday at the Apple Worldwide Developer’s Conference for web applications via the Safari browser on the phone.

If Apple’s main concern is the possibility of 3rd party apps compromising security and/or reliability on the platform, then opening up the possibility of Web2.0 style AJAX enabled apps is a step in the right direction, but you wonder how much Apple is missing out on taking advantage of running 3rd party native apps on the pltform.
