Removing the notice doesn't change the license, but there are plenty of
other licenses which do not require the retention of notices.

As to granting permission to modify the license, why bother granting a
license at all? I'm not even sure if a license which granted the
end-user to modify it at will would be defensible.

Again, I ask, what problem are you trying to solve?
