I would not be in favor of making this documentation change, but since this is effectively adding to the list of supported features of the language, turning an implementation detail into a officially supported behavior, I wouldn't do this without adding tests for it in the perl test suite, and getting approval from whoever gives approval for behavioral changes to the language.

That is, this change should be treated as not just a 'doc fix' but a new feature.
