There's certainly precedent for non-code cpan releases (e.g. all the Cookbooks), but that doesn't mean that this one isn't an "abuse" of cpan. It would make more sense to put it up on the perl5 wiki, for example. It would also make more sense if the name specified what it actually was, e.g. "Perl::Events::Staff". I'm sure the people whose names are listed here are doing good and useful things, but they're not the first people I would think of as the "Perl::Staff".
