If nothing else, it can probably be handled via cut & paste.
Reasonably similar metaphor, and people are used to it.

ways to accomplish the same thing, without much loss in ease of use.
One way may be a method similar to cut and paste in other applications:
right click the item that is to be moved, choose "Move this item" from the
context menu that pops up, then right click the item it's to be moved into
and choose "Move here" from that context menu.
Another might be two arrows next to the pane, which when clicked, move the
highlighted item up or down in the tree.
Drag & Drop is nice, but it's not the only way to skin that displacer beast.

The problem here is that it is hard to know in advance what locations will be available.
