I have never heard of that and considering the work required to sign up with a steam account, i find this hard to believe.

There isn't really a solution so far, as steam link trusts all people signing up with steam link. You could use a secondary usergroup that gets assigned if the user is in a certain steamgroup you can specify.

Other than that, the plugin would need to be extended to look for registration date and steam level as well. But since the project is pretty much abandoned, I cannot assist with that.
