I haven't verified that the kernel itself refuses to create/load

In any case, what is the threat here? If someone hand-crafts such a
pool, they still have to get the administrator to import it.

Even if the system is automatically importing pools, they'd still have
to have physical access to, for example, plug in a USB device with the
evil pool.
A USB stick "forgotten" in a public place can do wonders.
