One piece of FUD I hear from executives and friends is that "because Perl has no types, it can't be used to build large systems, and isn't as good as Java." To address this misperception, I suggest putting Perl 6's typing in a bullet by itself near the top, e.g. "Optional typing that is both powerful and flexible, moreso than typing in any other language".
