You're much more involved in Org, so I think your gut feeling counts more than mine here :) `755' is the funniest one, since, strictly speaking it doesn't correspond to anything "out there" (note that the shell command `chmod' wants the leading zero, or, well, it will do surprising things if you don't provide it ;-) But then, if it is clear that :tangle-mode is doing its own parsing, it won't matter much.
