Steam is slightly better than the absolute worst of the DRM systems yes, but it still can take all your games away if you so much as look at it funny. Even SecuROM or StarForce can't do that. If you travel with a laptop, I suggest you buy your games somewhere else. Steam has a tendency to lock accounts that log in from multiple IP addresses. 'Cause, you know, that's a crime.

This claim is not in the legally binding contract you agree to when you purchase a Steam game.

Last time I checked, it's actually mentioned in the EULA with a rather amusing wording. Basically they say that they might release the no-DRM patch, but no promises. :) As far as I'm concerned, they might as well say all their customers get a Ferrari if Valve feels like it.
