(I'm not a developer or anything, so forgive me if I'm oversimplifying things but...)

Surely it's just the fact it's being installed via the market app that makes it special?

I tried installing an .apk via the market, saving it elsewhere, uninstalling from the market and then installing it manually. The .apk was rejected as being a non-market app, so that tells me there's nothing unique about the apk; the fact that it's being installed via the market is what's important.
