I don't think that's a good idea.  After all, AFAIK the Perl group also 
maintains a few packages that are not libraries but Perl apps.  Separating 
libs and apps just for the sake of it doesn't make a lot of sense IMO.  If 
you want to separate dh-make-perl from the "regular" packages, then better 
put it into a "tools" dir or something.
