In virtually all of these cases, the right thing to add as a buildreq is

Yes. But intltool is included in some (a lot of?) packages so...
Adding intltool as a
buildreq will automatically pull in XML::Parser.
...will add a package as buildreq that's not used at all during build.

Maybe I should have mentioned here...

"So adding
BuildRequires: perl(XML::Parser)
is IMHO the better solution"

Ok, I will keep this in mind for future packaging. However, the "threat" of an external perl module being pulled into perl itself would be possible for any perl module... so are all perl related BuildRequires: to be perl(Something::Whatever) ?
