The problem is valve didn't make that obvious. If they had, I think less people would have bought the collectors edition than actually did. I mean think about it, when you label something as a collectors edition and bundle all kinds of stuff with it, that kind of implies to the customer that they are buying an upper tier package that would have extra perks to go with it.

Valve wants to screw them over a little technicality? Fine, fair enough, but I think they lost a lot of customers over it.
