Not really. Apple wants to ensure that the behavior they test is the same as the behavior the users see. So no "active content" download.

Typical apps do not download code, they are only updated when a new version gets released (and each new version is tested again by Apple).

In that sense John's other apps are fine, they are just an executable written in a mix of C and Objective-C, plus a fixed datafile we usually call "image".
