Can anything be done about apps that are perpetually "NOW ON SALE FOR LIMITED TIME" ? I'm not sure how long a "limited time" can be, but a year-long "sale" seems pushing the bounds of legitimate advertising.

They'll just have negative feedback deleted.
It's not like it's hard to find, it's been right there in Top Paid for years, the same apps and vendors using it. They might raise the price a dollar for a few days once a year, then put it right back "on sale" for 99% of the time.

Here's an example that can be found in Top Paid right now:
" This WEEK only $4.99! Get it now before the price is back at $9.99! "
but it's been $4.99 since the primordial soup was last seen bubbling.
then we have:
" This week only $8.99 instead of $16.99! Hurry Up, Get it now before the price is back to normal! "
but it's rarely if ever seen over $10, 99% of the time it's in the $5-10 range, so $16.99 is not "normal".
