Are global panel contents possible?

Unfortunately, I want some that are merged... for example, I would like 
to be able to have the web browser and email launchers as items that 
cannot be deleted/modified/etc, but allow them to customize the rest of 
the panel (ie: Add the weather thinger, add launchers for their own 
stuff etc).  Also, if I decide to switch from (say) Mozilla to Firefox 
as the web browser, I would like to be able to diddle one file and have 
it change the launcher for ALL users etc.

Without any real thought on the matter, loading the users contents.xml, 
then loading the global config overwriting/adding vales would be ideal.
