I can't really see that happening any time soon without many restrictions, that would be open to a lot of abuse. It would be very useful but people would definitely abuse the hell out of it with glorified rental services, game swapping accounts and more. To do it they would need to come up with some major restrictions to curtail that sort of thing.

Yeah I agree. If they did then people would stop buying the games even on sale. But if they did implement it then they would absolutely have to restrict how often you can add/remove people from your 10 sharing slots and add a bunch of other restrictions that might make it more of a pain so that people will prefer to buy it on sale than wait for one of their friends to get the game and play it that way.
