Root Folder / Inherited Permissions - Prevent Root Folder Deletion
We wish to create a document library called Common that would be accessible by all employees.
Common and series of folders underneath Common (think departments for example) would be defined by the IT department.
The root folders need a permission where only an admin can delete the folder, even though the below inherited permissions might allow user to create and delete folders at will.

This is exactly what we would use it for as well.
