Apple on Steam Link iOS Rejection

Mac Rumors has a quote from Apple's Phil Schiller explaining why the iOS App Store recently rejected Valve's Steam Link app (thanks [H]ardOCP). Amid speculation that this is out of concerns of losing out on game sales to Steam, they say the app violated several unrelated guidelines:
We care deeply about bringing great games to all of our users on the App Store. We would love for Valve's games and services to be on iOS and AppleTV. Unfortunately, the review team found that Valve's Steam iOS app, as currently submitted, violates a number of guidelines around user generated content, in-app purchases, content codes, etc.

We've discussed these issues with Valve and will continue to work with them to help bring the Steam experience to iOS and AppleTV in a way that complies with the store's guidelines. We put great effort into creating an App Store that provides the very best experience for everyone.

We have clear guidelines that all developers must follow in order to ensure the App Store is a safe place for all users and a fair opportunity for all developers.

Reminds me of that 'fiasco' with, Origin? or whatever... Steam pointing fingers... Origin? pointing fingers... Looks like the Commonality is only lying with Steam.
