I know you've been scheming for quite some time about this and have been showing your work to Sawyer and consulting with him on your plans. I don't know the details. My feedback is: No, thanks!
Honestly this whole effort seems like it would be far more appropriate for the Raku language. I do not believe Perl needs or would benefit from this.
There are so many other ways one could contribute to improving Perl, without trying to make it a different language than it is. (E.g. stop Test::Most from exporting Test::Deep's any and all by default ;-) )
No offense, but Perl stagnated for almost a decade last time some brainy people decided it needed some major Java/Raku/insert-name-here functionality stuffed into it. Leave it alone! Publish "COR" to CPAN if you think it's worthy.
I'm sorry, but I think it's a bad idea, and I don't like the implementation.
Thanks, but no thanks!
The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
