Maybe someone could write an Active Directory client for the 360 to restrict kids logon time and push group policies ;)

If you actually read the article, you'd realize that XNA apps are written in C# which is sandboxed.

Well ... surprise!

"Each parent makes different decisions about what games his or her children play and the movies they watch. If you're worried about your kids making that decision without your input, you might want to investigate the Xbox 360 parental controls. The parental control system blocks access to material rated beyond certain limits by requiring a password. This way, you can watch any movie of any rating yourself and give permission for specific movies or games."

(PS Goat movies can be controlled too ... just kidding. Normal people don't watch goat porn)
