Why don't p5-* ports mark their dependencies?

macports recommended perl is still 5.28

$ port info perl5
perl5 @5.28.3 (lang)
Sub-ports:            perl5.16, perl5.18, perl5.20, perl5.22, perl5.24, perl5.26, perl5.28, perl5.30, perl5.32
Variants:             perl5_26, [+]perl5_28, perl5_30

so that is supposed to be the default perl for everything, until such time as that is changed to perl 5.30.

So if you want perl 5.30 for everything, you will be fighting upstream at every turn.
