I think this should be 0777. SUID, SGID and sticky bit do not belong
into /proc.

It's not /proc specific, the function proc_domode can be used for all kinds of sysctls. It enforces a maximum mode, specified in the ->extra1 member of a sysctl table entry. In patches 2 and 5 you can see this value is 0444 for all five new sysctls.
