Well, you could put it that way, or you could say that by default it
creates private copies. Isn't this standard practice for many
applications that download things?

url-copy-file uses mm-save-part-to-file, which sets file modes according
to mm-attachment-file-modes. For world-readable, set that to 420.
There is no setting that means "don't change the mode bits"; maybe there
should be.
