You're way late to this thread.  No one is suggesting that, not even
I.  I should have written that "it's not in keeping with the spirit of
the license" (to distribute a subset under the same name) rather than
"in violation of" and the rest of my comments (and the thread)
continued in that regard.  I would hope that the packagers of perl
care enough about the wishes of upstream (and most seem to) to find
constructive ways to find compromise.
