Agreed. Though I'd prefer the ability to abstract all these delivery mechanisms and just get to my content. If I want to watch a TV Show, I'd like to see all TV show content in one place, regardless of how it's being supplied; same if I want to watch Science Fiction content, I'd like to see all available movies, TV shows, and clips in a filtered view, allowing me to then browse or perform add'l filtering. (Either PlayOn provides a merged view for all available content, or another script/plugin interacts with PlayOn to make the delivery mechanism transparent to the XBMC user.)

Sure, but it's only applicable to those with Vista MCE PCs, to be clear (and perhaps save another reader some research time).
As a counter, the PlayOn workaround, although kludgy, also adds YouTube, Hulu and CBS content, and is a much cheaper alternative to adding Netflix Instant Watch streaming to homes already running some UPnP client system (XBMC, Xbox 360,...), relative to buying multiple Roku Netflix Players.
