Apple to reject Watch apps that simply tell time

Developer David Smith was reviewing the Watch App Review guidelines when he came across section 10.7, which reads: 

“Watch Apps whose primary function is telling time will be rejected”

It makes sense as Apple is probably concerned with user confusion, since “time” app would likely include a watch face. Still, I feel for developers who had been working on, say, a world clock app.
