Gamestop having a version without Online could drastically shift sales to other retailers regardless of whether or not someone is likely to ever use the Onlive coupon.
(relevant part is 11 minutes in)
Offering a clearly inferior option has pretty dramatic effects on decision making - regardless of whether or not the inferiority is significant.
^ Gamestop is the one refusing to sell copies with the coupon. They don't offer a streaming service yet, though they do offer a download service. Still, they aren't making Steamworks an issue but were willing to further damage their reputation over a coupon for a company that competes with a product they intend to offer well into the future but not currently. If anyone threw a tantrum over this it would be Gamestop.
