Local policy management of Internet Explorer 11?

I run several WIndows 2008 R2 Citrix XenApp servers, and some settings, for us, are best applied through the local policy as opposed to a network group policy.

One of the settings we have to manage locally are proxy settings for IE. Up until IE8 this worked fine for us, but with IE11 the proxy settings no longer appear in the local policy, since they are now set by group policy preferences.

Is there any way to work around this? If I really need to I can do it via directly adding the proxy information to the registry at startup, but I feel there should be a more elegant solution to this.

I ended up doing via .reg files, annoyingly enough.
