I don't believe that there's a way, other than using pre-commit hooks,
to provide this action-oriented control - users are either excluded,
read-only, or read-write.

That said, taking away delete in a versioned system isn't useful
anyway - though they shouldn't delete they could produce a similar
effect by checking in an empty file in place of the original. The
action to reverse this is much the same as recovering a deleted file
so I wouldn't be too concerned. If you really do want to try and
block the commit of remove (including rename then) then a pre-commit
hook is needed - it wouldn't surprise me if something is available in
the contributor content for Subversion.
