It might not be VBA specifically but application scripting support is very important. Honestly though I don't think the iOS developers agreement supports scripting languages like VBA.
As to need, this is simple, anything beyond the trivial requires scripting.
I've never had to use VBA period, even on the desktop. And it's not like I don't use spreadsheets all the time.
Some people lead a simpler life. No big deal but don't underestimate the importance of scripting to others.
Numbers does 99% of what the average user needs to do. Most people just think they need Office because of the brand recognition.
Actually that is garbage, Numbers is the weakest app in the iWorks suite.
That said, while I love Numbers on the desktop, I find the iPad version unusable. Maybe it's just the form factor and necessary UI. I don't know.
It does take awhile to grasp Numbers on the iPad. I'm not happy at all with the iWorks iPad solution. Frankly it is a piece of crap and the lack of file compatibility with the desktop is part of that.
