It absolutely is Steam. They don't get a cut if DLC is sold IN GAME, so they don't allow it.

Explain Mass Effect 2. The DLC isn't available on Steam, or anywhere else besides through EA's stores, and you can buy it in game. The game itself is available on Steam.

And frankly, if I could buy the DLC on Steam rather than through EA's Bioware bucks pain in the ass system I'd rather do that. If that's the scenario Valve is trying to stop, well, then more power to them. EA's DLC system sucks, and if they were offering something better then maybe I'd be behind them a bit on this...but as it is the only people they're screwing are their customers. Again.
