Prefixing is the convention when packaging a library for a
language other than C/C++.
E.G., perl-term-readkey, python-sqlalchemy, ruby-hpricot, et cetera.
perl-rename isn't a library, but it does come from CPAN.  It
makes sense to hold onto the perl- prefix.
Considering all of the other comments that I've seen about prename,
it's probably worth deleting.
