It's been considered a feature. One thing is that nobody wants that a tool to install modules suddenly installs a new perl. Another is that some modules can only be upgraded when installing a different perl. So if there is such a situation it's your call to decide whether you're interested in upgrading or not. If CPAN.pm reports these cases you get potentially valuable information. One could probably come up with a different way of reporting it. I have not come up with a better idea though.
