I've a few games on my steam account, Purely because they where a good price. Personally I find it a little bit of a pain in the arse having to install my games into one Dir. So in my case I can't install any steam games onto my SSD. Unless I'm missing something and you can change the folder your games install to.

As far as im aware the steam dir holds all the steam games and there is no way to install the game on another hard disk. Its a problem which ive had because i would also like to have 'some' games on my faster drive but not all as i do no want to fill it.

there are ways to have steam point to another directory so that you can split up your games on multiple hard drives. people with ssd's typically do it. Ive read about it but not sure what the name of the tool is. ill look around

Complete hassle when the fact of the matter is that steam could solve the issue with 1 update... And how you come to the conclusion that installing steam, installing a game and then creating symbolic links is better than installing a retail game with the option to choose dir ?
