I read the same A6 as you, but came to a very different conclusion:
While I agree that Perl 5 is successful (and very much so!), I challenge the notion of it being "small" and "elegant". Well, it is elegant in many respects, but it could be more elegant in some respects. I think the problem is that the Apocalypses have to define all the special cases, whereas people interested in learning the language have to ignore all the special cases first. That might make it more difficult to get an unbiased view of what bread-and-butter Perl 6 will look like.
