Default Umask In Debian

I’m a bit bothered by something that no one can seem to give me a clear answer on: why is the default umask in Debian ‘022′?

Red Hat based distros, such as CentOS and SUSE have taken advantage of this, changing their default umask to 002. When will Debian, and Debian-based distros such as Ubuntu, follow suit? Can anyone give me a good reason why umask is set to 022 system-wide when the distro has implemented UPGs? I’d be interested to find out. Because as far as I can tell, this is a bug, and should be rightly filed as such.
