yet another sort issueby mce (Curate)

mce has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
There are many posts about the magic of sort.
I have a question that -I think- isn't handled before.
This bug is one of the hardest to find as the perl code runs OK.
Now, when warnings are on, perl complains that the following code is wrong.
but this isn't.
Wouldn't it be possible to alter perl so that it complains when using cmp when comparing only numbers?
At least, I would think this is very usefull.
I don't know that much about the perl internals, but I guess it must be doable.
