No, you definitely don't want to do that.
If you want to make local overrides ineffective, just mark the setting in 
question, the group it belongs to or the file it is in as immutable bei 
either adding [$i] after the key (before the = sign), after the group 
brackets or at the file's first line.

However I do not understand why you want to restrict the settings from 
My initial understanding was that you just want to have better defaults, so if 
you have a suitable kdeglobals in the installation config directory and no 
overrides in the user directories, you should have the new defaults.
