I haven't run into an issue with Steam in that regard once yet in the year I've been using it.

You're conflating two separate issues together. We aren't allowing discussion of mods on the official SimCity forums due to legal issues and the fact that we don't have a formalized modding policy in place yet. However, we haven't worked to actively block any user created mods. Just look at the mods available on Simtropolis for SC2013.
