If I want "more music choices" I will simply create a new Pandora station using the Pandora app for iPhone. Hell, I'll even pay the $36.00/yr to remove the adds, receive better audio quality, and support the Music Genome Project. What I will not do, however, is turn on FM radio.
First, there's a difference between keeping the apps available through Apple's App Store squeaky clean and how consumers choose to make use of the devices they've purchased. There's very little difference between how one makes use of their phone and its features and how one makes use of one's laptop or desktop. If critics suddenly start calling for Apple to regulate how, when, and for what purposes FaceTime may be used I sure hope they're willing to demand that other companies, e.g. Dell, AT&T, Verizon, etc., do the same. Their devices and networks are used for similar, if not identical, activities.
