as type coercion is the feature -- it's on a plain Perl, but it's still a
feature -- the "PMAW" for anyone who remembers those e-mails twenty years
ago -- how about invoking this mode with C<no coercion> instead of C<use
explicit> ?

Because "turning on a mode where the thing doesn't happen" requires more
mental gymnastics than "turning off something that by default is on".
