I don’t personally care that much about EMODPE but, you could probably get the point across with something like:

SGX’s EPCM permission bits do not obviate the need to enforce these rules in the PTEs because enclaves can freely modify the EPCM permissions using EMODPE.

IOW, EMODPE is not really special here; rather, EMODPE’s existence demonstrates that EADD / EEXTEND are not special.
