I'm just totally baffled as to why you guys would buy something that you don't need. Honestly, are you ever going to use or need these features?
How many will ever run a domain at home and need to join it? Just IT guys mostly
Who cares about BitLocker, when you can do the same thing for free and with more features with TrueCrypt?
Remote desktop support is nice.... but there are free alternatives (VNC) and hacks to enable remote desktop in home premium versions.
Virtual XP Mode....it's just a virtual machine. You can run this stuff for free with VMWare Server, Sun VirtualBox or Microsoft Virtual PC.
And no. Ultimate is not the included version with the Family Pack. It's Home Premium. So, instead of paying $150 for 3 computers, looks like you will need to spend about $600 for 3 OEM copies of Ultimate.
