I know I have the ability to prevent viewers from downloading documents which are not native to Google Drive (http://chromebytes.com/1717/prevent-viewers-from-downloading-google-docs-files) however how can I achieve the same effect with Google Drive native documents?

How exactly are you publishing the native document to the public? –  Bibhas Mar 15 '13 at 17:02
The most straightforward way would be to deny them viewing rights. –  Jacob Jan Tuinstra Apr 17 '13 at 13:33

Download the documents to your desktop and upload them again thus making them non native documents. You will still be able to make changes to these documents.
