So why is Google Play so fussy? I've downloaded other apps from it, including paid apps, so why is it so totally hung up on this device ID being 'known' or not.

It effectively won't even tell me it exists, even though I KNOW it's there. It is rather a ludicrous position to take. If it somehow is not compatible with my device, it just won't install/work, why not let me try and suffer the consequences?
