Awsome lookup. I thank you very much. I know now, where the restrictions are set. But what we need here is a change. Things should change to 777. And modified default umask values.

What you are saying, that touch for example is responsible to set the right values. Do you know where it stores the values? Maybe they are set systemwide - so we could change them? Because I want to break free ;)

You are right, I don't want any accidents. But to have no way to change it, is awful! Standard values should be 777. And we need umask file and umask dir. Set two different default values and fine. But now I have no way to create files with exec perms.

Why don't we just allow 777 for files? Even though we don't need it, we should not limit or disallow.

No you misunderstood. Umask is using the default file permissions of 666 and substracts its own value (which is 0022 for your system). So the most permissions you could set is umask 0000 - which still limits to file permissions of 666. (But apparently folders use 777)
