More precisely, with System Integrity Protection turned off, I moved /usr/local elsewhere (not in /usr, which is mostly protected), and replaced it with a symlink to the new location.  That way, I can rename what the symlink points to, without necessarily needing to leave SIP turned off.

sh-3.2$ ls -ldO /usr
drwxr-xr-x@ 16 root  wheel  restricted,hidden 544 May  4 09:08 /usr

The "restricted" flag indicates a file or directory is protected by SIP, AFAIK.

Also, in /System/Library/Sandbox/rootless.conf, there are (among others) the lines:
*                               /usr/libexec/cups
*                               /usr/local
*                               /usr/share/man
*                               /usr/share/snmp

where the lines not preceded by an asterisk are protected, and the lines that are preceded by an asterisk are exceptions to that protection.  Perhaps one could rename /usr/local out of /usr altogether, and then back; I never tried that with CSR enabled.  But I doubt one could e.g..  mv /usr/local /usr/local.hold
