I'm a KDE user so i may not know what i'm taking about, but in my few forays 
into Gnome it seems that gconf was kind of like what you describe. A regestry 
done right.  Also, most of the rest of your non-user specific config files 
are gonna be in /etc anyway.

Although, i must say i had endless problems with the templates in /etc/gconf.
