We already have a neat application for running Macports in a more user-friendly way; it's called Pallet. See:

Anyway you seem to be asking about whether MacPorts itself could appear in the App Store, while this thread started out asking if MacPorts could be made to automatically install software contained in the App Store. Neither is very likely IMHO. I still see MacPorts and the App Store as inhabiting different spaces, filling different needs.
