Aren't GPOs basically registry settings though? And the .adm language that Group Policy Editor uses is documented somewhere, so there's really nothing to stop you writing your own .adm files to control settings for non-Microsoft applications, is there? Provided they store their settings in the registry of course.
XP on different hardware
Actually there is a way to make it so an XP installation can be ghosted onto any hardware. All you need to do is before you image the PC, change all the IDE controllers (including any IDE-emulation SATA controllers) to Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller in Device Manager, and the resulting image can be put on any x86 hardware you like.
