The Orange Box Midnight Madness

This week's Steam marketing message reassures those purchasing The Orange Box over Steam will have access to the shooter bundle at the stroke of Midnight Pacific time on Wednesday:
We'll be unlocking The Orange Box products just after midnight Pacific time next week on the 10th of October. Lots of people have been having a lot of fun with the Team Fortress 2 beta, so we're looking forward to seeing what people think of Portal and Episode Two. The Orange Box will also be available at North American game retailers later on the 10th, for both PC and XBOX 360.

I really enjoyed all of HL, HL2 and Ep1 (and have played them all multiple times), but I'll be damned if I'm going to buy the "Orange Box" just so I'll have Ep2 on "opening day". I just don't understand why someone would want to waste an extra $15 on something they already own. Is it really that big of a deal to play the game the second it comes out? And, based on my pre-sale experience with Bioshock, it will take most of a day anyway just to "unlock" and finish downloading special files on an overwhelmed server.
