I talked to one of the Oculus Store team members last week at GDC, and it sounds like they are aware of the need and working on it, but don't have a release date yet. They have been rather all-hands-on-deck for the Rift launch, so once that settles down they can focus more resources on the Oculus Store. Every issue I brought up (user reviews, deep linking, in app purchases) seemed like something they were painfully aware of, wanted to fix, and were trying to get the resources to address.
I wasn't able to get any more specific information than that. My fear is that the performance granted to VR apps to make them run quickly also kinda kills the entire android app stack, which will make going in and out of other apps to handle store purchase confirmation (and deep linking, or linking from one app to another), a difficult challenge to say the least. I wish Oculus could provide at least a rough roadmap, since these features are necessary for any sort of monetized free-to-play ecosystem.
