I think what would have been on the minds of the CE buyers is that they won't advertise something on a retail box that isn't out yet due to the HL2 in the ATI box fiasco. I think most of them were also under the impression that their package was roughly equivalent to the silver edition.
Either way that is pretty ****ed up of valve to tell them that if they paid $30 less, they could have gotten more. It's a bit like how valve totally ****ed over the cybercafe owners just because they felt like being greedy assholes.
