(...), as <it?> is commonly supposed

What's more, we needn't feel an ounce of guilt about using them - research in America has convincingly shown that hypermarkets do not affect the character of a town, as is commonly supposed.

This is a sentence from my exercises.
Is it possible to say: "as it is commonly supposed" at the end of the sentence? If so, does it change the meaning of the sentence or is it just optional?
