For sure it would not be needed, but as for Wines regedit I am not sure.
AFAIK, it can only read NT-system registry, but not write it.

You can always try using Offline NT Password & Registry Editor. It uses
console UI and is more of command line editing, but whatever .
BTW, you or someone else can try merging both the ntreg library  and
Wine registry editor code to make a GUI tool to suffice your needs. I
hope there would be no license  collisions.
