Executable directory? If you have power over user $HOME, you can change
user's $PATH. I don't know what this have to do with anything being
executable (but maybe I just didn't understand.)

so what - the more you need to change the harder a successful attack
becomes - google for layered security

This is more like a security by obscurity approach. This "another layer" is just one step. It's like putting a duct tape over a keyhole and call it extra security.
