The impact of retaining the bug for another year should be low.
It's a long-standing bug, with fairly obscure triggering conditions.
There's little internally that depends on the bug being fixed; only the
documentation would have to change to match.  If there's a significant
win to be made in CPAN readiness for the fix then it would be a reasonable
course of action.
