Something is seriously wrong with you if you say Perl 5 is not ready for production use. By your definition a rocket is not production ready to launch into space because it cannot run on roads. This argument is absurd, and you diverting from the topic.
Even if you by any means of semantic play deduce Perl 5 is not ready for production use. Can you please answer the inevitable question Is Perl 6 at least as much production ready as much as Perl 5 is?
That question captures what people mean when they ask for production readiness of Perl 6. And there are no complicated measurements for productions readiness, some how only Perl 6 is having all these complications, every other piece of compiler in this world slaps '1.0.0' at a point of time with sufficiently acceptable conditions of quality, feature completeness, libraries and documentation and ships it.
If you are not there yet, then you are not there yet. Making the definition the goal ambiguous doesn't mean you achieved your goal.
