I find it strange that perlbrew allows the system perl to be updated

The biggest reason to use perlbrew is to avoid breaking tools that use the system Perl. (Most people will phrase that as "I can't get permission to modify the system Perl".) Disappearing the system Perl would not be a good thing.

perlbrew is a specialized PATH manipulator, that's it.
