Let me just link to the recent blog post of chromatic:
and point out the link Aristotle posted:

He enumerates some of the groups of Perl users that have distinctive
usage patterns.

I am not an expert on Perl 6 but I think the fact that those things you
mentioned don't work on the command line of Rakudo is mainly as
they were not *yet* implemented.
They might not be fully specced yet either.

See the draft version of the specification: http://perlcabal.org/syn/S19.html

I am sure the Perl 6 developer would be happy if you could send
them patches implementing some of those option or if at least
you could write tests that check if the features work.
