3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs. Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs (e.g., Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited).

You can have a library written in (Apple's languages) to handle calls to the APIs by the looks of it (though the bit in brackets could be interpreted to mean any intermediary/compatibility layer) but you can't write your application in anything but (Apple's languages) so your example would be rejected for being originally written in Flash/AS3.

There's also the point that supporting a 64-bit OS means that MATLAB should be able to support data structures larger than 4GB in size. It's simply a question of whether users needed to deal with large operands or large amounts of data. With high-speed data and image acquisition tools, I'd wager the latter is a higher priority.
