(SUGGESTION) Approach Randy Heit about including zDoom
Would it be possible for Bethesda to contact the creator of zDoom about including the aforementioned source port with Steam releases of Doom Engine games?

Would probably be illegal to use because zdoom uses code from libraries that are not free.

It's still a zDoom derivative. I imagine that having the original zDoom would lead to a lot less legal drama compared to distributing Doom with a derivative of the original.

Or...you could just take the zdoom/gzdoom exe file,and replace dosbox.exe with it (renaming zdoom.exe to dosbox.exe)

Would be just as illegal.

As nice as it would be, I think it would be bad if Steam 'favored' one port over the other, because there are so many out there, like Eternity, Zandronum, Chocolate Doom, PrBoom+, and more.

I like to play with the original engine sometimes so I hope this will not happen.

Assuming it did, though, it could always include the DOSBOX version as an option when launching, just like Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition does (or possibly something like Chocolate Doom instead since it doesn't need to be reconfigured for WIndows 8+ like the DOSBOX setup does)
