Steam Game Sharing Planned?

A thread on NeoGAF notes some code in the new Steam beta suggesting Valve is planning to allow Steam users to select games to share with a circle of friends. This is confirmed on Kotaku, where they say Valve has not yet responded to the report (not a shock since their story went up at 3:00 am on the west coast). Here is the code in question:

"SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicense_Title" "Shared game library"
"SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_OwnerText" "Just so you know, your games are currently in use by %borrower%. Playing now will send %borrower% a notice that it's time to quit."
"SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_BorrowerText" "This shared game is currently unavailable. Please try again later or buy this game for your own library."

Maybe it's just me and I can't seem to think outside the box, but what do Valve gain from this? Besides the potential for lost sales?
Customer satisfaction?

True, however didn't they have that in abundance already? I mean, I wasn't really aware of any community displeasure at Steam not having this functionality in the first place.

 
Trent Reznor - Atticus Ross an incredible team.
