I think you are asking a little much of the Apple TV, which is designed to be a very economical, specialized media device. The functionality you are looking for already exists in other products such as the Mac Mini.
As for whether or not it might support such features in the futures, nobody here can guess. You can submit feedback to Apple here: http://www.apple.com/feedback/appletv.html
Thank you, I will submit the feedback.
I was reading some more and it seem the Apple TV has the same A4 processor than say my new iPod touch. The iPod touch runs iTunes and has all the features I require, so in theory Apple TV is suppose to be able to do the same.
The reason I did not get the Mac Mini is that I am only planning to use the Apple TV as a media device and do not require all the additional functionality that the Mac Mini provide.
After more goooogling it seems that it is a wide spread view that apps might be coming to Apple TV, I for one definitely hope so. Otherwise I should have gone for a Mac Mini or an alternative Media server - my HD TV has a pc connection - so why stream if you can plug in?
