Just add UMASK=022 before the section you want to be readable, then
UMASK=077 before everything you want protected.  The procmailrc manual page
isn't really clear about this, I guess:

     UMASK       The name says it all (if it doesn't, then forget
                 about  this one :-).  Anything assigned to UMASK
                 is taken as an octal number.  If not  specified,
                 the umask defaults to 077.  If the umask permits
                 o+x, all  the  mailboxes  procmail  delivers  to
                 directly  will receive an o+x mode change.  This
                 can be used to check if new mail arrived.
