I generally organize based on the "Who cares?" principle. Stuff should located with whoever cares. So, if it's stuff that everyone in the company needs, I put it in the Company:: namespace.

Under those, I generally have things like ::Database (for DB stuff), ::Application (for CGI::App-derived stuff), and whatever else I need.
All of that is in one path not in the standard @INC that gets use-lib'ed from startup.pl. (Yes, I'm a mod_perl nut.)

taken to ensure that their contents do not
