Is there a good reason to deviate from Perl 6's definition of an
identifier? For the sake of consistentcy I'd just say that the Perl 6 rules
apply.

It occurs to me that *if* you are executing/evaluating (part of) the source, then it could be argued that an identifier should be defined by whatever language the parser ends up running, which might not be perl6.
