The third is to block some modifications (like moves of moved subdirs)
and allow others (like adds inside of moved dirs).

For example, we currently disallow copies of copies -- it's a hard
problem, not terribly common, and an easy caveat to describe. I see
no reason why we couldn't do the same for moves of moves.

But we *do* allow adds inside of copied things, and therefore I again
see no reason why adds inside of moved things shouldn't also work.
