There is just a lack in
3. Opensource developers with iPhones devices, iPhone development
experience and that accept Apples way of handling third party
applications on the iPhone.

Which unfortunately for OpenSource is the key ingredient: developers.

In contrast to commercial software development, which is usually
driven by users willing to pay for a product, opensource development
is driven by developers, their interest in their own application and
their interest in attracting collaboration to improve their own
application beyond their personal boundaries.
So the key thing you'd need is to get a couple of good developers with
iphones together to do such a port.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as if Apple is welcoming opensource
developers much ...

You are of course welcome to prove me wrong. But for example I do not
have an iPhone and I also do not intend to buy one.

best regards,
Erich Schubert
