notebook is a lib and should not be blocked, as a user without notebook perm won't be able to use any editors.
It would be recommended to validate if the user has the notebook perm on the notebook view itself on https://github.com/cloudera/hue/blob/master/desktop/libs/notebook/src/notebook/views.py#L69
