Default Kiss Cross-Region gifting and purchases goodbye

Steam Allows Publishers To Disable Cross-Region Gifting | Rock, Paper, Shotgun

That kinda sucks. It could be expanded to stop the "TOG friend" buying-and-gifting routine to get around region restrictions, and also stop the "email key" discounts we can get from sites like greenman gaming.

I really couldn't be buggered going through all the rigamarole of setting up VPNs and getting international credit cards or steam cards to get around this if it goes ahead. Although hopefully physical discs will still be OK...

Guess I'll be buying a lot less games in the future...
