Many of those require some knowledge of/assimilation into the Perl
community.  It's been my experience that most Perl programmers are not
involved in the Perl community.  This is part of the reason why such
classes would be useful.  The hard part then becomes figuring out how
to let those programmers know about this.

Agreed, but it's amazing how many of the things you need to know to be
competent are really very simple.
