Although I totally agree with you, I have a feeling that that scenario you described is going to be used a lot more.

About a year ago I proposed writing an app or iPhone and Android to our CIO, since I'm one of two developers here that works in multiple languages. It never went anywhere. Now, our CIO new idea is to have iPhone, iPad and Android apps. Fine. But she assigned it to our web team, who are all C# .Net developers. I have seen them google search for writing iPhone apps in Visual Studio, so at least in the Corporate IT world this is probably going to become more prevalent.
