It would appears so as you should not "side load" code into your application
via network.

But is racket a good choice to run in an restricted environment such as
iPhone?  It seems like if one were to choose racket as a development
platform for native iPhone app, there are a few questions (ones that I don't
know about - others might know) on whether it is currently viable:

   - ARM processor support
   - limited memory usage
   - Objective-C/Cocoa interface
   - Compilation to a "single" exe (zipped structure appears to be fine) -
   or at least compile all planet packages along with the exe so it can be
   shipped together without going through planet

There might be other questions but those are on top of my head.
