Valve can't legally release across Steam until Vivendi release to retail. If they do they'd be flagrantly breaching contract (at least as I understand it). It'd be one thing to use Steam against court orders when the game is actually released. It'd be another entirely to release before Vivendi is ready.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.
