No because nobody will have perl-5.005 installed until the transition is
completed. Only the developers of binary perl modules will have to
install perl-5.005 for compiling them.

All people maintaining simple perl scripts like dupload will only have
to change the perl dependency by a perl5 dependency (no need to install
perl-5.005 for that).

And the developer who only maintains 100 % pure perl modules can build
them with perl-5.004 (by following the perl policy) and it will work
fine with our perl-5.005.
