Microsoft do do it, on their closed-platform XBox 360 devices. They only run code approved by Microsoft, for which Microsoft takes a cut. Ditto Sony with the PlayStation 3 and PSP, and Nintendo with the Wii and various DS devices.
With those devices this is considered completely normal.
The question is whether you view the iPad model as more like that, or more like a PC model?
