If Apple were shipping a Lua VM, they could decide to deprecate it. They aren't, so they can't. They could decide that Lua was "dangerous" for some other reason, but they seem to have decided that alienating the game development community isn't a good idea and as long as the ban on downloaded scripts remains in place, it's hard to see how Lua is particularly dangerous.
