As you probably know, the iso9660 file system doesn't allow to store
permissions, so this is normal. For users using a physical copy of the DVD or
directly mounting the iso, it is recommended to mount with the exec option. If
you extract the files using an archive manager, setting permissions as you did
is a correct way to manage this.

I have no idea about this one. Any problem of disk space maybe?

By the way, if on your system members of the staff group have right permissions
on the destination directory, then you don't need root permissions to install TL
(except if you want to install symlinks in standard directories).
