No, there is not a way to disable this currently, even with an enterprise tool. Hopefully IOS 6 and forthcoming tools coming with Mountain Lion server will allow for this.

I Guess, even with iOS 6.1.3, the issue of not able to disable iMessages & Game Centre remains the same via IPCU.
All the Apps like Appstore, Facetime, Camera, Youtube are disabled, except Game Centre & iMessages.
Any solution for the above.
I have IPCU 3.5 version & iOS 6.1.3.

Have you tried using Apple Configurator instead of IPCU?
You can disable iMessages and Game Center by creating a restrictions configuration profile for "supervised" iOS 6 devices using Apple Configurator. Here's more on how to use Apple Configurator:
Hope this helps!

Yes, i did.
BUT supervising device means each device would iOS update. consuming lot of time.
So my question also is , whether every device to supervised has to go through update of iOS?

Unfortunately, yes... when you Supervise a device with Apple Configurator you are forced to update the iOS.
