Thanks for the suggestion.  I doubt we'll do a separate upload to fix
this, but we can definitely keep in mind should the packages be
updated for some other reason.  I'm sure you realize that you can just

perl /usr/share/doc/libxml-xerces-perl/examples/whatever.pl

even if they're not executable, but I'm pointing this out just in

I'll leave this bug open as a reminder.  Thanks for the report!
