That could be construed as a bug in Perl's internal grok_number() routine.

    Patches welcome. :)

    If anything, I think I'd rather see things like grok_number() become hooks so you can intercept them, whether to augment, replace, or just add:

    warn "Hey, scare's over now, you can go back to 2 digits" if $num =~ /^20\d\d\z/;

    Of course we probably don't reach grok_number() unless the lexer has already spotted a digit, so we'd need hot-pluggable grammars as well.
