I think that's part of this push, that Perl 6 is gonna become Raku, so that Perl 5 is just Perl again. Then I think Perl 11 is an aspirational interpreter/VM that will allow both to run, as was originally intended. I do see your point though.

This push did not involve any consultation with any community. He has never contributed anything to Perl 6, let alone Raku. He continues to use Larry's image and calling him a "saint", without his consent. He does not listen to other people.

In other words: he's doing Perl the worst possibly favour.
