server feature request. forced backup

I´m doing incremental backups with rsync to a remote server using 
--backup --backup-dir.

I would like now to prevent the posibility that an intruder in the 
backed-up machine could try to remove the original data and the remote 
copy through the rsync service.

Seems to me that this could be done with a new server option 
(--forced-options???) to force the --backup thing to be done, so the 
rsync server never completely destroys any data it has stored.
