Couple of points about your list.
Perl Object-Relational mapping: Class:DBI
Class::DBI could probably fill the entire book, but that would do a disservice to the other great O/R frameworks out there. Not to mentions the fact that the subject of O/R mapping is a wide and varied topic which is as much theory as it is implementation.
That said, a Class::DBI book would be nice :)
Perl web application frameworks: CGI::Applicaiton, Maypole, CGI::Prototype, etc.
Don't forget about Catalyst, I have not tried it myself, but I have heard nothing but good things about it. I also think that this subject would not fit easily into one book, and separate books per-framework would probably be best.
How to develop, test and maintain large perl projects.
I agree very much on this one. While merlyns book is great, it only covers so much. I would love to see a good book which really delves into large scale design/development/testing/maintainence in any language for that matter.
perl for application testing: WWW::Mechanize, Win32::IE::Mechanize
IIRC chromatic just collaborating on a book on perl testing. I would guess that it has this type of stuff in it.Anyway, just my 2 cents. Nice list :)
