Some of the blame lands on parrot, some on rakudo. I think chromatic once said that rakudo's generated PIR is so register heavy that it will bring any register allocator to its knees. But, this being undated information it may now be obsolete.
If Perl6 is released as a JVM language, it will go straight into java culture that expects interoperability with all the java libraries there are, and goes against those alternative languages that have found some real-world use: rhino, clojure, jython, scala, gosu... Perhaps the performance would be acceptable, but I would find it unlikely for Perl to retain its role as unix system glue if the future holds no native implementation.
