Comment (by pavelevap):

 You can check for example following search (Google):

 - `You are not allowed to edit this page.` - current message, many exact
 search results from wordpress.org or SE.

 - `You aren’t allowed to edit this page.` - proposed message,
 nothing relevant found.

 Removing XML-RPC was mentioned probably somewhere in Trac (after adding
 REST API), but I am not sure about it, maybe it was only mentioned idea
 which was later denied.

 What about adding translators comment, that these strings are `wp_die()`
 related? It could be helpfull for translators to know context.
