The permissions of the apache2 log dir

Hi list

Last week i ran into the very restrictive folder permissions of the
apache2 log dir. They where "drwxr-x--- root adm" but I changed them
to "rwxr-xr-x root adm" so a unprivileged user may opdate webalizer[1]
at night.

That got me thinking (which I generally don't like...), does anyone
know why the permissions are so strict, and is there a risk in the
change I've made beside that everybody now may read the logs?

The answer seems to elude me.
Thanks, tit
