Naruto got the Sage's Body. He's clearly got the epitome of Senju/Uzumaki heritage when it comes to stamina, which is what lets him use literally all of his jutsu. Sage Mode, Rasenshuriken, mastering the Kyuubi... these would all have been impossible for Minato, but Naruto is capable of using them. Also, being an Uzumaki, Naruto is able to inherit the Rinnegan. However, I don't think that's the way the manga's headed.
Naruto would also be a prime candidate to wield the Sage's spiritual weapons, such as the Banana Fan. Notice how Madara didn't take it back. Personally, I think Naruto could easily defeat just about any Uchiha if he used the KinGin Bros sealing methods. Just touch them with the rope once and wait for them to say "Clan", "Hatred", or "Revenge"...
^ You forgot the most important one, "Uchiha".
Naruto has a strong blood, but it isn't at the level of a kekkei genkai. It's more like Akimichi's clan ability to burn calories for chakra in an instant, they also use pills to boost that process, though it seems that Chouji is the first one in the clan that achived such level, so it's possible that his descendants will have it at his level as a kekkei genkai.
Well, the Akamichi still have to train for that technique, and also constantly eat to keep enough calories to burn. And part of their power probably stems from the fact that they're descended from Senju, being Konoha residents and all. So they share in some of the same physical strength Naruto does, but it's diluted to the point where it isn't that special, whereas Naruto's Uzumaki heritage is still strong.

You're right, I wouldn't call it a Kekkei Genkai exactly, but it IS his most powerful asset, aside from sheer determination. It's the reason, when all is said and done, he can stand toe-to-toe with Mangekyou Sharingan/Rinnegan users. No one else possibly can, you NEED at least half of the Sage's powers (Body/Eyes) to match the other half. That's what we've learned from watching Danzou and Orochimaru's attempts to best the Uchiha, and from the fated rivalry of the Uchiha/Senju as equal and opposite superpowers.
yeah naruto hails from the senju, that's as bloodline limit as it gets; no?
Naruto in the senju clan is more of a bloodline limit.
He wields great physical energy, just like the 1st did.
So its genetic.
^ No, it's like in sports family (where parents are great sportsmen/women), the kid will probably be born with high physical potential, yet a kid like that can be born in a normal family as well (the Gin Kin brothers weren't as close related to so6p (who isn't :P ?) as Naruto is, yet stil they had a very high physical energy).
On the other hand, someone with a kekkei genkai, can only be born in the family that it came from, or be the first one to have it.
Does he need to say any more? Everything is said in this, well written post.

Say he grabbed a sharingan from Sauske. Would he be complete?
