Well, this was explained in the review ticket:
"This package is a bit odd. To avoid circular dependencies, I've
bundled DateTime, DateTime::Locale, and DateTime::TimeZone."
I'm not sure of the best way to avoid those circular dependencies, but
surely bundling a few closely related and very small modules is low on
the hierarchy of packaging sins.

Not sure what good it would do, given the above.
