That might work for most programs, but for some, they expect to be in C:\Program Files. Especially things like Office, Visio, Internet Exlorer, iTunes, Java, "Common Files", etc. That's going to eat up a chunk of your SSD that you will not be able to use for your other programs.
Besides, if I am playing Civilization today, and get on a Dragon Age kick tomorrow, I don't feel that I should have to uninstall the former in order to make room for installing the latter. I don't see options in Steam to move or install games to a drive other than the drive where steam is installed.
That's just me. You probably feel differently in your situation.
