Preloading is basically downloading the game files in an encrypted state, and only Valve has the decryption keys.

So I don't really know if splitting the preload process is necessary because pirates or their suppliers can't even decrypt it in the first place. At worst when the game is released they would have to simply download the rest of the game and then upload it to various private FTP's / Topsites.

At that size I really hope you're right Nite, or they just decided to use the best compression they could find.
