OpenLDAP create children only


I would like to give a set of users the ability to create objects in the
directory under a specific dn.  It seems by reading the Admin Manual
(specifically the bottom of 8.3.1) that setting the children attribute I
can create correctly.  I do not wish that they can remove the DN after
they have added. So I can't just give them write access to the DN or
that will give them the ability to delete.  Am I missing something or is
this just not possible with the current ACL structure.


olcAccess: {9} to dn="ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com" attrs=children by
dn.children="ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" write

So I would like to add a group,


but not allow someone in ou=people,dc=example,dc=com to delete the DN
after it is created.
