This is somewhat deliberate. The perl pkg is not easy to update as
so much depends on it. Also, for 5.005_xx the internal APIs changed
again and we need to validate all the other packages that use it.
There are some vague plans to change the pkg system to allow experimenting
with newer versions of perl, but I haven't had time for that and noone
else has picked it up. Did you want to volunteer?
