Time to drop support for Perl 5.8?

Perl is moving onward and many modules have Perl 5.8 support only provisionally (Moose for example, already has a stated policy of only support 5.8 on a best effort basis). Perl 5.10 has a number of additional features we might want to use over time and by not be stuck with 5.8 ways of doing things.
I would like to suggest a policy going forward of bumping up the major Perl version once a year or so, starting with 5.10 for 1.5.
Any feedback or objections?
