I am not sure how the store will work, but I would assume that it would give MacPorts the ability to install other dependencies should they be needed (such as Xcode, which I assume will be on the store, along with XQuartz).  

Mac App Store sounds like a great idea. I'm not sure it's applicable to what MacPorts does though. I think the Mac App Store lives in the same space as applications and utilities the user installs manually, and MacPorts lives in the space of software users install using MacPorts.
