Word, excel and other office suite products uses locking files to
indicate that they're being used by somebody else.

I'm not certain though what kind of information is stored in these
locking files.

As far as I can see, the ~$filename.doc file in 2003 seems to list the
locking user as the first bit of information in there. I'm not sure
how the file grows as you edit the document, but that would be a good
place to start looking.
