Yes, that looks great (based on reading the documentation).

Although you have provided a few canned presets, I envisage that the exact selection would often be done in a 'style' module like Modern::Perl.  Personally, I would set it to a small change at first, only disabling those punctuation variables which are truly obscure and obsolete, like $[.

(I do still like the idea of 'no formats', with 'use formats' enabling both the format keywords and the associated punctuation variables, but I understand that it's kind of unrelated to the key issue in this bug, which is to get more useful diagnostics out of the parser for typing errors.)
