If you dont want to lose those features, then do as I and many others have, and disable live under family settings. You can do it while the ethernet cable is unplugged. Then you will not sign into live!
Now I still have all those functions, but only play on xlink or offline.
I know your right its just me wanting the best of both worlds ie: having backups to play online as well as offline.
I have tried xlink and xbconnect but never been able to get connected
