I know this isn't really in the scope of MCM (at least as I interpret it), but it would be great if parental controls in Media Center could "read" and "enforce" the ratings in metadata xml files.

You'll need to know how to write programming code, or have access to someone who can. Here's as close as you can get this (for now):

  1. Grab a copy of MediaBrowser's source code (it's open source)
  2. Modify it to check the rating and the current user -- you may have to write some interface for password-authorizing content
  3. Make sure Windows Media Center doesn't index any video content directly -- force the user to go through Media Browser
