Hmm, do we have another, less loaded word that we can use here? 
Permitted seems to strike the wrong tone (i.e. "we don't want you to, 
but if you absolutely must, fine, it is permitted"). What about simply 
"may":

"User agents may allow users to modify or bypass CSP enforcement, 
through user preferences and/or third-party additions to the user-agent".
