I read that XNA does not support networking in the FAQ.

And I realize if it was provided there would be many security considerations to keep ill thoughts at bay.

But, does microsoft plan to add limited networking to introduce online XNA gaming possibilities

Maybe through a strict set of web services

I know XNA is new, but XNA would be limitless if we could rent server space from microsoft or some other 3rd party.

Well it would be nice if an XBox could act as a server.

They are planning, at some point in the future, to release a professional version of XNA that would have the APIs for the XBox Live communications. Currently, you can implement your own system, but only for Window's games.
