It's not just how the packages are built.  There are also bundling and
license issues which require manual inspection.  The only reason for
allowing texlive would be because it's already undergone a full license
audit.  Unless someone has done that for CPAN, I certainly wouldn't vote
for a blanket exception if this came before FPC (which it probably
wouldn't anyway, because this is more of a FESCo issue).
