Steve really said the key thing here.
If you want to let them customize the desktop, but just
not store files there, then you have conflicting objectives.
Both require a grant of write for the desktop, and grants
are not sensitive to what is being written.
You can have one or the other - no changes to the desktop
or any changes to the desktop. Otherwise you need to get
inventive (like the script that deletes after copying, etc.).
