Didn't we used to have one version which did both the jobs? There was a period between CD keys and the Age of Steam where the service came packaged with games in an entirely optional download. If at all possible, single-player boxed games should go back to that. For the digital version bought directly from Steam... I don't know, maybe after they ban your account they could e-mail links to all the games you bought and host them for one month, giving you time to save them elsewhere? I think once downloaded to your computer, the installation files for games on GoG don't need online connectivity to confirm anything.

Just throwing out ideas. I know there's no motivation to actually do it, the Steam legion vastly outnumber those who take my view, and publishers couldn't be happier now they've got more control than ever.
