I don't think this would not be a significant cost. Only the package declaration would have to be checked (and there is already some checking of package names); everything else would work out to a normal syntax error or a nonexistent package error.

That said, I'm fine with Perl's "if you want to do something stupid, who are we to stop you?" philosophy.
