I'm a SharePoint Farm admin, overseeing the Intranet. I have many Users with Full Control permission on our site.

Many of them have expressed using SharePoint Designer to customize their Team Sites. I don't have a problem with that.

But how can I ensure they don't compromise any of the pages in the 12 Hive, especially the core.css file (which is available via Designer)?

On the same note, what other concerns should I have with allowing Designer to be used?

Don't allow them access to the root sites, just their own site collections.  Make sure that they have backups of their files as well.
When they edit their site collections they do not have direct access to the 12 hive.

I had to do more than. I basically gave them just Full Control of thier own site. This prohibited them from having access to the hive.
