Now that Steam is distributing software, I would be interested to know if LibreOffice is going to feature there. I am a big fan of the Steam ecosystem and the way it handles updates, so seeing LibreOffice on there would be great!

It seems like the DRM provisions built-in to the Steam delivery network might prevent it from distributing LGPL software such as LibreOffice.
I agree that LibreOffice could definitely benefit from a better mechanism for producing and distributing updates. Please consider filing an enhancement bug and asking for improvements to the updater to match the experience you've enjoyed using Steam. Don't forget to mark your bug as an 'enhancement'. The QA team will be happy to help you triage your feature request in the bugtracker.
