It would be nice if computer administrators could enforce settings across all 
users of a computer, enabling some form of managed deployment.

Mirroring the existing settings (at least, the ones that make sense for all 
users) from HKEY_CURRENT_USER to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE would be a logical way to 
do it. Putting settings in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies tree and providing 
Administrative Templates to manage the settings using Group Policy would be 
above and beyond.

If would be even fancier if the presence of a managed setting cause the UI 
for that setting to be disabled, grayed out, &c.
