Except that in this particular case the user would also have to have 
got filesystem write access to the Extensions directory and a 
Manager role in /Control_Panel in order for him to be able to 
comment out the code and restart Zope, because ZShell
is currently an external method.

Anyway I tend to agree with you, it shouldn't be possible to bypass 
the security mechanism.
