Prevent deleting of sheets without protecting the workbook

In one of the many forums I frequent I ran into this question:
"I'd like to prevent people from deleting sheets from my workbook, but I do not want to protect the workbook, how can I achieve that?". Here is my solution:

Open the VBA editor and double-click the ThisWorkbook module in the project explorer. Select Workbook from the dropdown on the left, just at the top of the code window. Select "SheetDeactivate" from the right-hand dropdown. You should get:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetDeactivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
End Sub

Now add two lines of code so it looks like this:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetDeactivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
    ThisWorkbook.Protect , True
    Application.OnTime Now, "ThisWorkbook.RemoveProtection"
End Sub

And add this routine:

Sub RemoveProtection()
End Sub

So what happens here? As soon as you try to delete a worksheet, but just BEFORE the sheet is really removed, the SheetDeactivate event fires. In that event I protect the workbook structure. But I also schedule a macro to run after the event is finished so the protection is immediately removed.
If a user now tries to delete a worksheet, he gets this message: "Workbook is protected and cannot be changed."
