If it works, the upside is that anyone can do it themselves and coach their family into doing the two step process once on the first time install.
If it doesn’t work, we need to get a real developer to make a real app that jumps through Apple’s hoops. And then the developer has to keep it updated every time Apple makes a change. I agree this whole thing is a bother, but as other posts have pointed out, “This is not the good old days and security is not going away” so this whole discussion is trying to find the narrowest point to cross. If the amateurs can do it themselves with a two step magic incantation, then this puts the ball back in their court and allows them into the game with out going through the Apple doorway.
