I think the only way to tackle this sort of problem is at the corporate level. 
Customize *all* Word installations, and get approval from upstairs to lock Word 
down to the customized version.

I used to work with a Word MVP who did this for a client. One click in the 
toolbar, the user interface changed completely, and the total Word environment 
was locked to the corporate templates with all opportunities for local 
formatting removed.

On a historical note, Interleaf implemented Word round-tripping back in the 
early 90s as a cost-plus option. Seems like things have gone backwards.
