Will there be provisions for apps to become "sponsored" by SO wherein the limits are removed? Say somebody writes the de-facto iPhone app and it gets 500,000 users, the 10K cap will be hit pretty quickly.

According to Getting Started with the API, the 10K cap is per-IP address. Thus, the API limit for an iPhone app would be per user, not for the whole app.
