    So I have no idea if this will work, but I emailed Jaxbot at Windows Phone Hacker with it and we'll see what he comes up with.

    Basically the "company apps" feature of WP8 will allow a "company" to push XAP files directly to devices, bypassing the Windows Phone market entirely.

    Couldn't some smart "hacker" person like Jaxbot just create a "company" and then push homebrew XAP files directly to any Windows Phone 8 device?

    You could just get a Dreamspark or various other types of MS accounts to get a free WP developer account and then just sideload a downloaded xap file.
