Default Worthless updates

It took me all of about 2 minutes to find a worthless pending update for
Fedora 11.

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/perl-Locale-Maketext-Lexicon-0.78-1.fc11

No data in the bodhi ticket.

Rpm changelog says "Upstream update"

If I google for upstream and look for a changelog, I come to this:

http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/DRTECH/Locale-Maketext-Lexicon-0.79/Changes

in which the grand total of changes between what shipped with F11, and
what is in this update is:

* Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Tie
- Removed a deprecated use of "defined %" for Perl 5.11+

* Locale::Maketext::Lexicon
- Removed a deprecated use of "defined %" for Perl 5.11+

Ok... removing deprecated uses is a questionable at best update, but
here is the kicker. The perl in F11 is perl-5.10.0-82.fc11. So these
functions aren't actually deprecated in F11. So... why is this update
going out? What possible benefit does the user get from this? Does
anybody see this as a reasonable update to publish on F11?
