With the default stack of backends, that is true. The default stack is suitable for small scale deployments, and is enough to demonstrate/test an application's ability to be locked down.

To implement more sophisticated lockdown, you would probably need a more sophisticated backend in the stack. For example, one that pulls a set of defaults or mandatory settings from an LDAP directory based on the user's login and group membership might be appropriate for larger deployments. If such a gconf backend existed, you would only need to modify /etc/gconf/2/path to enable it.
