You can create a 4.0.2 application that will "run" on the Storm, but that does not mean it will be usable. The touch interface introduces some challenges (like size of components for touching), and some opportunities (like shortcut toolbars, etc).
However, it should be much easier to create a new 4.0.2 app from scratch that will run on the Storm, than it is to "port" a 4.0.2 app that was written 2 years ago!
If you distribute the application OTA, you can look at the user-agent info in the HTML header and correctly redirect the browser to the correct JAD file for the version that is appropriate for the OS level. This is how we distribute the REX applications.
I don't think anybody knows the answers to these questions regarding the app store, not even the RIM folks.
