Is there a kind of backward compatibility or something ? Ie will perl get
into testing before all the perl modules packages get updated ? Or has the
perl-5.6 package disappeared ?

Is there a plan or something to update all the packages ? If not, you
should seriously consider sending a mail to debian-devel-announce with a
bit more explanation about the requested changes (ie you could include the
text version of the perl policy so that people with full time net access
can have it without downloading it). And also indicate, that they have 2 weeks
to update their packages and after that bugs will be sent and another week
after NMU may be done. I'm sure Joey could do this again (sending bugs). ;-)
