deprecation and install destinations

When discussing module deprecations earlier this year, it came up that dual life modules installed from CPAN should not set INSTALLDIRS to perl. Instead, the CPAN instance of the module should install to the site_lib tree. Is this correct? 

I notice version.pm from CPAN is installing to site_lib under 5.12 perl. It's the only dual life module that does. Is this a mistake or are there reasons it needs to do this?

Thanks,
Todd
