I've given up using the Steam Store because of how much dross there is. Finding quality titles is extremely difficult and the entire experience has become a chore. I remember being excited at each sale and constantly checking the Coming Soon tab but now I pretty much only get games on Steam from the Humble Bundle or via third-party websites like CDKeys.
Opening the floodgates is only going to further reduce quality. Steam should have two sections: Steam Prime and Steam Indie. And Steam Indie should still have quality control. Turning Steam into a libertarian wetdream only makes it a crappy experience for the majority of users.
Is this really a problem? The Steam curation for suggestions is very good and generally speaking I know what I'm looking for anyway. I can't say I ever spent a lot of time browsing the Steam Store even back when it was a little used platform. Between the curation, top charts and etc I think I'm pretty well covered for filtering. What I really want is better sales in terms of pricing but that's really up to the publishers/companies, not Valve.
I do like your suggestion for segregation but the trouble there is there isn't much separating mid tier publishers and indies anymore.
