umask in Ubuntu Oneiric

joar@jupiter:~$ umask

I wonder why they’ve changed umask from 0022 to 0002 in Ubuntu 11.10 .
Look like yet an other ‘make linux userfriendly’ apporach
Personally I’m not a fan of files being group writeable when i create them:

joar@jupiter:~$ tail -1 .bashrc 
umask 0022
joar@jupiter:~$ bash
joar@jupiter:~$ umask
