The create access right (cyrus-imapd 2.2.6)

According to the documentation, the "c" access right on mailboxes should 

create - The user may create new sub-mailboxes of the mailbox, or delete or 
rename the current mailbox

Setting a negative "c" access right on a mailbox should therefore mean that 
it can't be removed or renamed, nor should it be possible to create 
sub-mailboxes under it. This is mostly true with version 2.2.6 (maybe 
earlier versions?), except that it is possible to create sub-mailboxes...

Some mistake, surely?
