3,4,5,8 are all fine by me. 7 is a mess; don't go there. As for 6, I want to see MARKDOWN as a supported alternate documentation language. POD was great in its time, but the world has moved on. You've turn it on with a new keyword like

=input [pod/md]

where 'pod' is the default.

I would like to see some markup/down/pod that has semantic tags:

Instead of =head2 or ## I'd like to see something that can be used to mark:

function, method, variable, attribute, class etc.

Actually, I'd use =from instead of =input because it better aligns as the inverse of =for.
