Gabe Newell said on Reddit that if EA wants to put their Origin service on SteamOS for Steam Machines, they are more than welcome to do so. That's either being really committed to their promise to keep the OS open or a blatant announcement that they do not fear competition.
“What part is proprietary?” Newell asked on Reddit. “We’re trying to make it as open as possible. If EA wants to put Origin on [SteamOS or Steam Machines], that would be fine.”
This isn't to say that there is a SteamOS version of Origin out there, just that Valve won't stop EA from making one. This way, EA can still get their Origin-only games that they've pulled from Steam on Steam Machines. Of course, it's only if they want to.[Source]
