On Unix at least, this doesn't apply: rm -f doesn't mean "ignore permissions", but but rather don't ask confirmation which the rm commands asks in some cases (empty file, directory, etc).
Ans the code posted wouldn't work, since the permission to remove a file applies to to the file, but to the parent directory (must have write permission). And we certainly don't want to change the directory permission anyway.

Not sure about Windows, though.
