For now- they may implement licensing restrictions in the future so one day Mojang either does MS's certification process and passes the cost on to you or tells MS to piss off and all future releases of Minecraft won't work on Windows 8.
Patches slow down because they all wait on MS approval, indie titles get shut out, etc. etc..
