Is there any way, any way a version of Fennec will ever end up in the
Apple App Store for use on the iPhone OS platform?

Never. Apple doesn't allow apps that compete with built-in apps. Your
only hope is Jailbreaking when it comes out.

At this time Fennec cannot be produced for the iPhone due to limitations in
the iPhone SDK which prohibit applications from executing / interpreting
code - this would basicially mean that we can't ship a browser that runs
JavaScript. :(

cheers,

Yea, it's extremely unlikely. Firefox would violate their rules on
several points. It would compete with Safari, it contains an interpreter
for a programming language (javascript), etc.
