Well, it kind of does.

There's a phase in the configure_requires plan that occurs after it is
supported in the core (which is 5.10.1) where we start upgrading various
distros to bitch in a specific way if they fail.

So DBD::SQLite could just while "Failed to find DBI, your CPAN client may be
critically out of date, please upgrade it".

One the CPAN client is upgraded to ANY version that supports
configure_requires, the problem goes away forever.

Only downside remains that the CPAN client out-the-box isn't good enough, so
we have to make sure to catch this and push the users to upgrade more
aggressively than they do now.
