Subversion shouldn't delete anything from a WC unless it was deleted
in the repository as well. Your users are already locked out from
checking in updates to these directories, so unless your concern is
that they might see something that they used to be allowed to but no
longer do, there's no harm in the files remaining. And they won't see
any future changes to those files.

Even if it did do this, what assurance do you have that the user
didn't copy the files/directories outside the WC before you
implemented this policy change?
