Is there a way to script this behavior, or set it through a registry setting?

Primarily for Office documents like .doc. I'd like to configure this setting
across several thousand servers, without having to go through the UI on each
one.

For .doc, you use export this registry key and apply to other systems. You
only need the REG_DWORD EditFlags, which governs this setting and many
others.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.8
(Assuming Word 2000)

EditFlags - Explained here:

FILETYPEATTRIBUTEFLAGS:
