Note for Flatpak it's ostree repositories, not REST API's.
It's similar to flatpak repositories but not entirely. I'd assume that
the Ubuntu Store will be a tad more complex than a flatpak repository,
as they plan to have a big one for all the stuff (with a big
asterisk). For example, on the Ubuntu Store, you'd be able to have 5
firefoxes.

2 things:
- it's seems that they want to set up stores within their instance, so
it's possible to have a custom one with some parameters.
- also it should be possible to set up a separate one.

I don't understand the question.
