You might want to take a look at this random awesomeness that Bytemark pulled off at LRL in 2008. (Valve did later recognise this, sending some freebies, although a little late, as they noted in the third post. I think they also said at some point that they were given a 'special' Steam account for a time in order for this to work.)
