Exactly.  It won't change _anything_ for the average user.

The change _only_ affects group permissions. Nobody bothers with
group permissions normally , partly because they couldn't be
bothered because it is too difficult mucking around with newgrp,
chmod and umask.

This way, group permissions will suddenly become practical after
20 years of unix!  Hooray!
