You can do this with ardour's edit groups.  Add one in the right hand side 
"edit groups" tab, and then click on a track's 'g' control and select the 
group to add it.  Activate the group, and any edits done on a track will 
propagate to other "similar" regions on the other tracks in the edit 
group.  ("similar" basically means starting at the same time and having 
the same length").

There are some slight problems with edit groups in current releases but I 
am working on ironing them out.  Please let me know if anything doesn't 
work as expected!
