I'm not sure how much point there is in the -nonfree suffix. I doubt
we'll ever need to distinguish between free and non-free implementations
like we do for, for instance, unrar: most likely, Steam will remain
proprietary forever.

In the highly unlikely event that Valve open-source it, the open-source
version could take over the 'steam' name and the proprietary version, if
still useful, could be steam-nonfree.
