comment Most unix-like filesystem that can be mounted under windows and Mac OS X
it might be so in theory, but at least on the linux side, the tool to format in udf (udftools) seems very old and unmaintained, and fails to compile on my machines. Reading will not indeed be an issue since it is the file system used on DVD's.

I think in this case you are very much limited to FAT. Your problem with the executable bit is due to the fact that FAT does not support that sort of permissions which is very much a POSIX things. since UNIX system work on that sort of file permissions, when you mount a FS which doesn't support it, it will get emulated. indeed by default a VFAT file system mounted on linux will have all files and directory appear as 777, but it doesn't mean that there is an actual executable bit set on the FS.
