Precisely correct, IMO. Same burden would be present if we had to do something dumb like use v7;. It's just a bigger "feature turn on" approach. I characterize this as opt in to new features versus opt out. Traditionally perl has done the former, which is what I call backwards and I contend is a big reason for the situation we're in. We just need to do the latter.
