Why would Apple be against it? It doesn't cost them App Store revenue because the store on the Mac is as ignored as the one on Windows.

If anyone buys a Mac with the intention of running Linux on it, that's one more Mac sale than there would have been otherwise, so I have trouble imagining why they would do anything to hold this up. They aren't helping, because that's work and the number of sales they can expect from people wanting to run Linux is probably a few thousand at best so it isn't worth their time to support. But they'll take the revenue so long as someone else does the hard work of making Linux drivers for Mac hardware.
