Yes, ... RH's responsibility, bad design on their part.

However, there is a substantial difference between "webserver" and "perl(mixin)"

"webserver" is a virtual package/property, perl(mixin) is a 1:1 correspondence
to mixin.pm.

It does. perl(xxx) is the file dependency on xxx.pm with the %vendor*/%perl*
cruft removed.

FE doesn't have a policy of vetoing.
