Like Yle Areena & Ilta-sanomat? Hopefully by mistake? Jolla store should be sailfish native. Android softwares don't run smoothly and aren't too responsible to touch. They also can't use homescreen "widgets/actions. So native only pls :(

I don't see a problem if those applications are tested and work well, as seems to be the case for Yle Areena.

I'd suggest marking native Sailfish apps with some small icon and enabling search criteria to limit whether user wants to list only native or both.

The suggestion @Kontio linked to should be the way to go.

Could this be closed as a duplicate as question #914 (that @Kontio linked) pretty much discusses the same?

Or some label "Requires Android support" and way to check what apps belongs in that category. Same approach to Sailfish natives.

It's always a bit an effort to balance between new ecosystem and good and extensive app library. I would also choose the puritanism approach, but instead I'll say: make it visible and let the user choose.
