Yes, unfortunately this behavior of IE Maintenance is irritating. What I
usually recommend is to only edit these IE Maint. Settings from a pristine
machine that has no other settings on it and is used specifically for this
purpose. That prevents the policy from "sucking up" the settings that are in
place on IE on your current profile.

Hmm, Maintenance policy, i feared that :-) I have never properly understood
that part of Group Policies. When opening "Security Zones and Content
Ratings" it imports all IE-setting from my computer and presets _all_
settings for my users. But I don't want to configure all settings in all
zones, I only wont to configure a few settings. Most of the settings will I
leave to the users to choose. Maintenance policy is in some sense not a
"true" policy, because you can't choose to _not_ configure a value. Or is
there a way to achieve this with Maintenance policy?
