Neither do I use arise nor I use viper.
He should make it permissive only if anyone opts to install arise in aroma that too only if necessary and with a security warning.
Also, I don't believe arise needs permissive. If you remember all custom kernels led to battery drain on freedomOS earlier and the temporary fix for it was to set SELinux to permissive. Now it has been fixed but I guess nevax forgot to roll back the temporary fix.
EDIT : I was considering moving to experience rom but guess what, it advertises permissive mode as a "feature"
EDIT 2 : In freedom os thread op states "enforcing mode (security first)" so I believe permissive mode is in fact by an honest mistake.
