Seems a reasonable request,  /usr/share/doc/perl-modules/copyright does
include the Artistic-2 currently.

  Add "Artistic 2.0" to /usr/share/common-licenses in "base-files"

Status in “base-files” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: base-files

  Artistic 2.0 is already used by many Perl projects, but not only by
  them. In the future, Perl6 will have this license, and many Perl
  modules will switch licenses accordingly, so I think it would be a
  great idea to include it in "common-licenses".
