I see your point. There is a logical inconsistency however in having a client that automatically detect its being needed, and a local application being registered with a given extension.
I do get this issue locally but the reason is that I have two resources (pblished and local apps) and one trigger (namely the extension type).
Windows did take this into consideration for it is the same issue as having two or more applications registering the same extension,and some apps forcefully re-register an extension. If you install two apps ( local apps ) that can open .txt files for example the only way to select which one is going to open the app is right clicking an using the "open with" option. Since the published apps profiles get refreshed an updated periodically there is a tendency to place the published app back in the highest position on the list.
As for backup and restore, the 2x client registers a listener so even if there is no session one is started when required.
Your way people without the local app need to start a session or run the 2x client before opening a document.

His first question, “What about my remote users with office already installed”
Is there any update?

There's no point using the TS if they have a locally installed app.
We have a feature request to turn off some file associations from being over-ridden if a local application exists.
There will be a note on this when available in our changelogs :
