I think your assumption that you will be able - even via some horribly
convoluted series of steps - to run unsigned and unnotarized apps on
FUTURE versions of macOS is probably in error. From Apple's actions
and statements, they very much are moving to a similar sandboxed,
highly vetted, approved by Apple model for macOS as exists for iOS apps.
But at that point, we don't know what will be possible. MacOS may by
then be so tied up that it has become equivalent to iOS. The
disappointing part of this thread, for me, was how quickly those in the
know convinced me there was no chance of a 'runner' app for mobile (in
particular, iOS). I think by the time it becomes infeasible to
circumvent the protections on MacOS, it will also be infeasible to
produce a signed 'general runner' app for it.
