It's not cool to simply be tapping the CPAN because it's there

That's pretty dogmatic. It's an organic system with room for many roles: some people consume, some only occasionally produce, some produce full-time. As Larry says, there's more than one way to do it. There's no point demanding CPAN contributions from people who aren't in a position to make them, or who don't want to. If you want more CPAN contributions, work to ensure that contributing is easy, fun, and rewarding.
