Yes, this needs to be redesigned completely. Are you volunteering?

The compatibility mode is perl5:CGI, that loads the old Perl 5 CGI.pm.
There's little need for us to port bad things to Perl 6. Peoplo who

creating something that's GOOD for new code. This said, I do think it'd
be wise to document changes in accessible tables.
