4. Apple now has more developers than they need, so they can afford to weed out those they think are least likely to actually produce salable apps of which Apple takes a cut. The days when Apple needed to entice developers to their platform by giving away free developer tools are long gone.
5. Keep the workload of Apple's developer technical support down since "casual" developers likely account for a disproportionately high number of clueless nub bug reports, and a low signal to noise ratio on apple developer mailing lists. Remember, Xcode is still an uncharged download to US $100/year "serious" Mac and iOS developers; it only costs US $4.95 to those who formerly downloaded it for free.
rational regards ;^)
