I think that is for all apps. Probably there is something about signing apps. The don't want to put to sell apps which are not signed. That is my point of view.
My email (Jan 19th) states:
We encourage you to login to BlackBerry App World and click the 'Post for sale' link for the approved product in (URL removed) to ensure your product is available in the catalog for BlackBerry App World
Yes, I'm hoping to make some money from my game.

Funnily this is exactly the opposite to your email...

I got that e-mail, but pushing the app to the App World doesn't change its 'Approved' state so I guess I'm OK... But I won't upload any update cause it might change that state! Thoughts?

It looks like they changed their minds on what we should do. Although the 1st few apps to be approved had already been installed on the CES demo units - maybe that made a difference, maybe not. Too many questions and too little solid facts from RIM to say why it changed.
