555 for shlibs on HPUX is not negotiable --- the performance cost of not
doing it that way is horrific.  Shlibs are so wonderfully nonstandard
that there are likely other platforms with weird requirements for
shlibs.  So I'd suggest 3 categories:

programs				0755
shared libraries			platform-specific but usually 0755
data (libraries, headers, *.sample)	0644

Otherwise I agree --- no real need for 444 on data files.
