MFiT is locked to each mastering engineer.

Apple will reject submissions to the store as a MFiT release if the mastering engineer isn't on their list. It is not a published list but if someone (label/artist) tries to submit an audio track that comes from someone not on that list, it will get rejected and the submitter will then have to submit to the regular store. The whole process of trying to deceive Apple creates a delay to get into the store too. Claiming to be MFiT approved to a client will only annoy the client (since their track will get rejected.)

MFiT engineers know what info needs to be provided.

The list exists. Sending AAC files for distribution is another sure way of it being rejected.
What's sent are 24 bit native sample rate wav files, ideally checked for no clipping via iTunes' encoder.

I'm waiting for the whole thing to differentiate itself further from the regular iTunes catalogue by switching to ALAC and supporting native 48k sources, doing away with SRC and potential encoder clipping entirely.

They look for the studio/engineer by e-mail adress, at least that is what my experience was quite recently. The MFiT masters where rejected at first because 'I wasn't listed'. They checked by using my new e-mail adres which wasn't on the list. My old one did and after I send that to the client, the aggregator got a confirmation that I was on the list indeed.
