Actually, there is something someone with wx access to a directory
can't do, that being get rid of a subdirectory they don't have (and
can't give themselves) write access to.  The most they can do, as far
as I can tell, is change the name under which the subdir appears.

I don't think this is reason enough to toss out the idea of allowing
mounts by anyone with wx access, though.  Personally I'd be inclined to
demand read access as well as write and search....
