No point in using zfs allow if you run zfs receive with sudo…

Btw, I tried allowing all sorts of stuff to a similar user for zfs receive, but never got it to work, and ended up setting up sudo as above instead. These things may have been fixed now, though, since this was some time ago (and I don't work there anymore).
