I don't think this is accurate.  Windows XP implements the telnet
protocol, so you can connect to it from a remote system.

I'm not sure I see the relevance.  cmd.exe can indeed be run via
"M-x shell", but that's not a terminal emulator, since terminal
commands (like cursor movement and colors) are not supported.
"M-x shell" is just a simple text-mode interface to the shell
and any console commands you run.
