This was welcome news. It's extremely onerous scrolling through hundreds of crap-apps to find something halfway decent to install on my android tablet.

Yeah, while on a different ecosystem, I have remarked a couple of times on the generally lower bar of quality in the mobile zone.

Who determines what's low quality?  And what is the process for this, i.e. can you get back on?  Seems like a move towards the evil empire ecosystem...

Well, my apps are still on the Google Play store, so I know they're not removing ALL low-quality apps.  :D
