Considering that (e.g.) sip.conf and iax.conf may contain passwords in 
clear-text, I'd agree that 770/750 for directories and 660/640 for files 
would be most appropriate.  The g+w bit needs to be set only on those 
directories/files that ought to be writable from within the Asterisk 
process itself.
