Valve never does things out of the kindness of their hearts.
Of course they are. It's like a full game "demo". If it's successful, you can bet your ass they will release a newer game with more maps/features/gameplay modes for a price.
To be honest, I like this system. Now I can see if I enjoy the game mechanics first. It makes me much more confident when dropping $40+ on a game.
