Is just like tmp, anyone can write into it and manage those files/directories belong to him. Only root has the ownership of tmp, so only root can delete the entire /tmp directory.
You can just create a /t directory in root, switch normal user do: "cd /t ; mkdir ttt; touch aa ; rm -rf /t" -> You will get permission deny for those that you have not ownership, only those that belongs to you gets deleted.
The directory is not delete
-able by any user, it is just write
-able by any user.
