Can the IOS Native SDK be packaged as a pod?

Most libraries used in IOS development today are distributed as a source you can grab from github if you want to make your life hard, and then a cocoapod.
Cocoapods - as seen on cocoapods.org are a way of handing the dependancies, libraries, build path changes, header lookups, and all the other details of integrating a library automatically.

Can you package the IOS SDK as a pod? (dependant on FMDB, SQLCipher, and MKNetworkKit, of course)?
You could even keep the pieces as sub-pods, and have your demo app as something where you already did pod install, and the whole project is in git.
The short answer is no, not likely any time soon.
