As I have said numerous times in the past, there is absolutely no need
to put docs into a separate top level directory in the CVS repository
to allow differing commit access to them.

If you want to allow a different set of users to commit to a certain
subdirectory, simply make all the files in that subdirectory owned
by a separate group.  End of story.  There is nothing magic as far as
permissions go WRT what level within the CVS repository the directory
is at.
