This is a good question and one that will be hard to definitively answer, although we could try to define, over time, what is and isn't covered by this particular close reason.
One type of question we do get regularly asked are those related to the legality of something. Of course legality may not necessarily refer to a potentially criminal action, but could refer to things such as breaching software licence agreements, or how one goes about breaking/cracking/circumventing something. These questions are inherently tricky and, because this site has a global audience, there is no way to answer them definitively as laws will differ in different jurisdictions.
I bring this example up because it could be argued that these types of questions should be closed as being a recommendation type question. Why? Because in a sense the OP is asking for an off-site resource that just happens to be "lawyer" or other similarly qualified individual who can advise or explain the legalities in their jurisdiction, or explain the meaning of a particular licensing agreement. If not an individual, then perhaps some other reference source, but either way amounts to wanting a recommendation to someone or something.
Obviously, some of these questions are clearly off-topic for various reasons, but others may be more difficult to differentiate because the OP is still asking a question about an Apple product or service and they may also have a practical problem to solve.
If as a community we can reach a consensus that these types of questions are recommendation questions, this would go a long way to providing a consistent approach that will be easier to educate others about.
That said, I'm open to opposing views.
