Compare this to Phoronix's own survey (you'll need to do some digging), and you'll see that someone that's even remotely interested in gaming under Linux is usually using nVidia hardware coupled with the nVidia binary driver - which performs under Linux just as good as it does under Windows. (Most likely because they share the same code).
Sure, ATI drivers have yet to reach the nVidia level, but their ATI's drivers, even under Windows, were always their soft spot.
Valve should not have any problems targeting nVidia + binary (ID has been doing it for years now... Same goes [to same extent] for Epic and LGP).
