you already have a permissions entry.  If that were extended to include a
disable-plugin-warning permission, then presumably at install time the
installer would warn you that the extension was requesting this ability,
much like installing an Android app.   If you are installing something that
you don't think should need that ability, then you might think twice about
installing it.
