2-step verification

Please add 2-step verification as an option for securing my xbox / windows live accounts. Many large companies have these systems in place and it should be offered to help curb account piracy. Using text messages or even a free verification application download on Windows Phone 7 / Android / Apple products would save your technicians a mountain of calls.
