Windows Domain Group Policy for Windows XP

Is there a way to create a group policy on a Windows 2008 R2 server that will prevent only XP pc's from getting on the Internet? I want this to affect the whole domain in case an XP pc is attached to the domain that I am not currently aware of. I know that I could create an OU with just xp pc's but I do not want to take a chance of missing any.

Create a WMI to filter out all the XP machines.

This TechNet describes the process.

Use WMI or (easier) group policy preferences to target XP machines.
