"Read Only" field, using "Field Read Only Field: n", is editable

Changed the "Organization" field on Account "Read Only" by using "Field Read Only Field" with a calculated field.

BC "Account"
Field: "Org Read Only"
Calculated: "Y"
Calculated Value: "Y"

BC: "Account"
Field: "Organization"
Field User Property: "Field Read Only Field: Organization"
Field User Property Value: "Org Read Only"

However, and possibly because it's an MVF with an Assoc Applet, users are still able to Add and Remove Organizations against the Account via the Shuttle Applet, even when the Read Only calculation returns true.

What's the correct approach to making an MVF read only, such that no records can be added or removed if the field is configured as such using the "Field Read Only Field" user property?
