Properties are things that are set with "zfs set".  Permissions are not
properties, and as you discovered, are unfortunately not transferred with
"zfs send".

User/group quotas are also properties (eg. "zfs set userquota@ahrens =

So this is working as designed, but I think it would be a nice enhancement
to also (optionally) send the "zfs allow" permissions.  You would have to
implement a way to serialize the permissions, which are stored differently
than properties.

What's the scenario where you'd like to send permissions? Backup?
