What I'd really like is multi-computer single-user licenses, i.e. I don't have to go into offline mode on my other computer in order to have steam up and running. I had a stupid situation the other day- I was transferring my computer to my son, so I was uninstalling software I'd installed into my user account to give him more space. A lot of that software was through steam, and even though I was only uninstalling, I had to go online and update Steam and be connected to the account just to uninstall.
That seems really stupid.
