Running WoW through the Steam Client?

Is it against any terms of service to run WoW through the Steam Client?

In the Steam Client, you are able to add programs that are not Steam games to your library. Running a game through the Steam Client allows you access to your Steam Account when you play by using SHIFT+Tab, which lets me chat with other Steam users and lets me use a Web-Browser in game. It does not give me any advantages over any other player in terms of gameplay.

I was wondering if this is valid. Thank you for your help.

Was unaware this was even possible.

I guess I'm also interested.

Unsupported, but fine.

The steam overlay is a seperate program that runs in the background, seperate from wow. The steam overlay is not really different from alt-tabbing or holding your push to talk button when you use vent or mumble

It would be considered unsupported and we would not be able to troubleshoot any issues that may arise from using steam, Cornu.

To Blizzard it's not really any different than using Vent at the same time as WOW. They just don't support it, meaning they won't help you troubleshoot it if it doesn't work, just like they won't help you with Vent.
