I agree. This would help readability.

User space is displaying it. What happened to it?

What about changes of attributes? chmod, chown, chgrp, chattr, setfacl.

No audit records are generated when I made the file world readable. I suppose 
you could hook the right syscalls, but that would provide way too much info. 
The reason I ask is Table 1 of CAPP,  FMT_MSA.3 says that we should be able 
to audit all modifications to the initial value of security attributes & 
modifications to permissive or restrictive rules. Maybe I misunderstand the 
application of this requirement, but that seems like file permissions.
