I'm sorry but I have problems understanding your questions ...

The only thing I'd like is that lintian knows it doesn't need to
complain about a missing perl dependeny if there a dependency on one
of those package :
- perl-5.005-thread (even if it doesn't provide the modules, this package
depends on perl-5.005 so that we can consider that the module will be
installed if this package is installed)
Now, lintian may accept a line with "perl | <new_depends>" where
new_depends is one of the above package (except the two *-thread) ...

I don't see the need of perl-5.004 | perl-5.005 since you can depend on
perl5 in order to have the same dependency ...

perl5-thread and perl-5.005-thread as explained above.
