Don't really want to repeat myself, but I'd hate to see this be done in some 
weird way, when there are more generic ways, so...

This could be handled with a template mimetype -- 
x-application-mywordpro-template, or whatever, and an action for that 
mimetype that does 'instanciate' instead of the usual open.

Beyond that, such a system would let you 'instanciate' any word document to 
create another by using it as a template :)
