There was a strong objection immediately after I posted this, namely, that this warning catches typos and you can’t use a class before it’s loaded anyway. The ticket didn’t pick up the messages, probably because the subject line has extra-Latin-1 characters in it and, when MIME-encoded, doesn’t contain ‘[perl #...]’.
I personally do not find the objections convincing, but I am not interested in arguing about it, so I’m rejecting this ticket.
