You can vote what you want as long as there's noone doing the job. :-)
Besides that, information on what's in the machine would be useful. 

Is the XBox really just a PC with standard components (IDE disk, NVidia
gfx)? What's this "embedded" chipset? Are there drivers in XFree for it?
What other hardware does it have - network, ethernet, usb, firewire?
What system board is used, what internal bus is used, what controller
chips? Where can documentation on the chips be found?

And of course: who'll donate the hardware IF someone is found to do the
job? Is XBox already sold after all? Anyone wanna to to M$.com and ask for
a few development samples? Migh be nice for them to show how
anti-monopolistic they are ;-)
