This is everything else than easy to answer. There is no simple “yes” or “no”.
It depends on how secure you want to have your units.
Generally speaking you do not need an AV solution on XPe. But if the units can get infected somehow (local IE for example) then these ones can act as a relay gateway before they got rebooted.
After a reboot the unit itself is clean again but other may have been infected.
Can you guarantee that all XPe based units getting rebooted at the same time?
So these are only some thoughts but the decision has to be made by you.
