To a degree, MetaCPAN perpetuates the problem by publishing module Pod which, in many cases, links back to as well.

I have this old and rejected PR against Pod::Simple to switch links to --
If anyone is up for writing a subclass as theory suggests, that would be
helpful for the -> metacpan shift.  It should also be able to support other
Pod:: modules that are built on top of Pod::Simple (like Pod::Markdown) so
other documentation formats can also use metacpan links.  (I was surprised
to see that the documents I generate in all my github
repositories contain s.c.o links!)

Also, I noticed that links on the site also use s.c.o, so
that's another code path to update...

and then, there's 391 pages of results for -- many of these are META.* files
that are generated from some code somewhere (so one patch should fix all of
these, over time), but a lot were inserted manually.  This would make for a
great task for the OCD-minded (I'm looking at you pathological
typo correctors). ;)
