I think that all bookstores should pull out of the iOS market and stand their ground. They can certainly frame the debate so that it is clear that Apple is the one who changed the rules mid-race.
The booksellers got what they wanted, which is to remain on the IOS platform and to continue to have access to those 200 million free spending iOS users. They are content. Abstract questions like who changed the rules or even who won means less to them than to us.
