If you have suggestions for Apple, contact Apple via the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page or via their feedback pages at http://www.apple.com/feedback.
As stated by vazandrew, those features are not turned off or Restricted by default. In fact, there are no restrictions turned on by default.

Yeah, I understand this is a user group. I was just trying to be helpfull in case anybody else had the same problem I had. So, maybe yours was not off but my AppleTV Purchase & Rentals WAS off by default.

I wouldn't put anything out of the realm of possibilities with technology. Typically they are SUPPOSED to be automatically turned on, however I could see that if there is a restriction on an actual iTunes account (one that is set up for a child/college kid where the parents financial information is set to not allow purchases) that the AppleTV might import the defacto settings of the iTunes account.

Someone would have had to enable the restriction, even if it was imported as suggested by jfaul013.
