I really do like it. As with any new language feature, I'm worried that
we may not fully grasp what the "right" semantics should be in some
subtle way that isn't readily apparent. 

My inclination is to commit it with documentation stating that it's an
experimental feature of Perl 5.14 and that we'd like users to report
back to us and that in 5.16 it will either be removed, ammended or
simply blessed as no longer experimental.

I'm trying to contrive some idiotic use cases now :)
