My branch addresses the main complaint of the OP, that the error message
gave no indication of what the issue is. With my branch, all those modules
are now getting a clear and unambiguous error message, which if looked up
in perldiag, explains the shift in attribute position for 5.28.

So, no, you shouldn't have expected better results.
