With the M right, they will be able to modify (rename) the directory. You cannot
stop that. I've heard of people doing things like placing a hidden file in the
directory and ensuring that the users have insufficient rights to remove *it*,
which then keeps them from removing the directory. That won't stop them from
moving it elsewhere in the file system, however.
