As a programmer, user interface designer and gaming aficionado my honest opinion on this is that, in this day and age, with the obvious examples of how important streaming has become for producing free, extremely specialised and market penetrating advertising, ... combined how important it is for the scenes biggest players who shift, define and generally shepherd the masses to games...
... this sort of FIX should not simply be a tweak, if you're not designing your UI, user experience and systems from the ground up with Streaming in mind, if you're not 'intimately familiar' with the streaming experience, you_are_doing_your_game_a_complete_disservice.
Because games are obviously no longer just to be played, they are rich entertainment showcases and therefore the quality of streaming experience you offer defines the sale-ability of that experience to viewers, in a scene that has seen continued growth versus traditional broadcasting and, because of the scope of both the Broadcast and Gaming industries, has incredible potential for continued growth only truly being realised right now by the Streamers making money off the quality of streaming experience you provide whilst effectively marketing your games to what ends up being millions of people.
Improve their experience, improve the return on the time you've invested into making a great game.
