That's how it got into Apple, but it continued to be promoted by Apple mainly in the interest of developer lock-in.

Or maybe the people developing the tools were the same people who did it at Next, and so it was the expedient thing to do? Apple was nearly broke that the time. They were in no position to "lock in" anyone.
Of course Apple, like any large large business, would prefer that their customers were locked in. But this is not an example nor evidence of it.
