    Steam is already acting like a sort of digital rights registra so it would be fairly trivial for them to put together a system for transfering rights between account holders. (As pointed out above they already have the game gifting system.)

    Of course there's no profit in it for them, unless they decide to charge an "admin fee" for processing the transfers... I also doubt they would provide the actual marketplace for selling 2nd hand stuff, but who knows, they could set up their own 2nd hand, digital game store and take massive cuts from second hand sales to the extent that they get more money from them than they do from first sales...
