This is especially unfortunate in the case of unauthenticated users.

... meaning that RXAFS_StoreData would be permitted only when storing
to locations beyond the end of the file? Yeah, that sounds
reasonable. And also RXAFS_RenameFile with the dropbox as a target.
Perhaps a time limit would also make sense (if file's modification
time is more than 1 hour prior to now, refuse all storedata's, even
beyond the end of the file).
