I'm not sure a PPC is necessary to propose a CPAN module to become dual
life. If the module is developed on CPAN, the only purpose of including it
in core is for it to ship with Perl; Perl core has no say in its design or
development on CPAN. Though I will say that there is not a formal process
for deciding which modules to ship with core currently and that is
something that could use improvement.
