As for first page, there are use cases for DIR_MODE 0755 and 0700.
Whatever you choose, you will never ever choose good default for
everyone - that's just not possible. Since we choose to be Linux for
human beings, I guess, we would rather put 0755 than 0700. 0700 brings
you just too much problems later (like, personal web pages, possible
problems with mail delivery, etc...).

Never the less, there are some things we can and should fix. For
example, default umask for users in Ubuntu is 022, but vsftpd has 077
default umask. This should be made consistent.

As for page #2.:
