Hmm, could you give concrete examples? In `info coreutils 'cp invocation'`:

     In the absence of this option, each destination file is created
     with the mode bits of the corresponding source file, minus the
     bits set in the umask and minus the set-user-ID and set-group-ID
     bits.  *Note File permissions::.

AFAIK, cat + > will create a file in "default mode", which is masked by
umask. Originally, umask is set to 022. But who knows what would happen
after the system run for years? ;-)

IMHO, cp will preserve file modes in some degree while cp + > will create
files in "default mode". Feel free to correct me if I have something wrong.
