The internal flag prevents a resource URL from being viewed directly with a

No. You might need the include files in your published project as well.

Create two projects for the root filder "/".
Let's call them "project_a" and "project_b". 
Obviously, any resource is shared in these projects. 
If you now edit a resource (e.g. "/index.html") in project_a, there will be
a flag
on the explorer saying "belongs to project_a". If you now publish project_b,
No resource from project_a will be published. 
So to prevent your resources from getting published, have them belonging to
another project.

That a bug. Every file in /content should have the "i" flag set. We will fix
that ASAP.

The default permissions are (you set this with the "hammer" icon) can be
compared to unix default file mask. This is the set of permissions with
which every new file is created by default.
