After some short tests we found strip failing for any regular user as
well inside fakeroot on files with permission 444 or 555:

$ cp /lib/libacl.so.1 /tmp/testlib.so; chmod 444 /tmp/testlib.so; /usr/bin/strip /tmp/testlib.so 
/usr/bin/strip: unable to copy file '/tmp/testlib.so'; reason: Permission denied

Dan could confirm this on his system.
