I hope so. There is no O bug against wnpp, and the cause of Chip's
departure is unfortunate. But on the other hand, he explicitly said that
his packages are orphaned, so you are probably fine to go ahead.

The pkg-perl repo is for the package mainainership, so it is unrelated
to upstream's svn. As your work as a maintainer should only be on
upstream's released tarballs, you probably should not use their svn
anyways (unless, of course, you plan to package svn snapshots). So I'd
prefer if you treat that package like any other, using our svn
repository with svn-buildpackage and based on released tarballs.
(Unless, of course, I overlooked something)
BTW: For human interaction, we use the debian-perl list. You said you
are subscribed, so I'll just reply to that one.
