Well, write permission was *already* given to anyone :

administrateur [21] ~$ umask
administrateur [22] ~$ umask -S

and this had no influence :

administrateur [23] ~$ touch foo
administrateur [24] ~$ ll foo
-rw-r--r--   1 544      Aucun           0 Mar  5 21:46 foo
administrateur [26] ~$ perl -e 'print "yes" if -w "foo";'
administrateur [27] ~$
