obviously trading the digital games back into steam for credit could get really complicated, but i don't see why they couldn't allow users to trade with each other. if i were to trade fallout new vegas in exchange for day of defeat with my friend, it doesn't matter if the dollar value of the games are different, it still counts as one copy of new vegas sold and one copy of day of defeat sold. it doesn't affect the developer or publisher at all, only which steam account has the rights to which game. for valve, i don't think it'd be hard to pull off.
