B::C is not in ext/ inside the core, so "EX" does not apply. If you want
to use it from CPAN, is has to be "A". From the core point of view,
nothing on CPAN is "more special" than everything else.

Claiming upfront that you intend to ignore the spirit of the rules
anyways just makes it so much harder to get your patch accepted, so
please don't do that!
