This feature has been in three stable releases of perl, with no changes to the implementation as far as I can remember.  As evidenced by ticket #132589, this feature is actually being used in the wild, and the only bug report it has had is not actually a bug in Perl, but in a module.

I suggest we accept this feature as stable for 5.28, and enable it with ‘use v5.28‘.
