Can I temporarily stop commits to a directory

I know this is a weird request but we are moving some directories around and so need to stop only commits to the current directory so we can copy \ make the new directory and then cvs remove the files at the old places so the files can later on be modified at new location. ( I would like to clarify that maintaining the version history of these few files is not important but moving is more necessary) .

Is it possible to temporarily restrict the commit access to these directories only. with say lock files so that people can still checkout and update the said directories. I tried putting #cvs.lock and this stops the checkout and update also.

Thank you very much for your time. If this has been addressed elsewhere kindly point me in the right direction, I tried to search on Google, but may have missed the relevant document.
