Yes, this was designed for files.

One nice thing about this is that you can have a read-only network-wide 
mount of default settings mounted via NFS and every single KDE client 
will use it. Update that one with a new setting and every single user 
will see the new default.

While I'd like to see this feature in other backends, it's not really 
necessary. But bear in mind that it is an essential part of Kiosk. If the 
Elektra backend cannot support that feature or something similar to it, 
then it cannot be used for Kiosk-mode.
