You obviously don't understand: the Perl 6 energy _is_ spent on improving Perl 5. Perl 6 is the best thing that could have happened to Perl 5. It's probably the reason why Perl 5 is still thriving and growing.
I'm sorry, I don't see the connection. You are theorizing that without Perl 6, the nice ideas from Perl 6 wouldn't have found their way into Perl 5. But maybe they would have anyway, and via a far less circuitous route.
