If the importing module uses an explicit import list, @EXPORT isn't any more evil than @EXPORT_OK is. @EXPORT provides a default list to import. It's up to the user of the module to decide whether to use the default or not. I very seldomly write a module that has an empty @EXPORT and a non-empty @EXPORT_OK. Not providing defaults isn't very friendly in my book.
