There are at least two reasons.

* It seamlessly integrates into macports, which means it can be easily
  installed with `port install lilypond-devel'.  It can be also easily
  removed with a similar command.

* It uses the most recent libraries.  While the stuff in gub works
  (more or less), many used packages are severely out of date.

How hard would it be to get LilyPond into the macOS App Store?

Likely impossible.  Apple is allergic against the GPLv3 .
