It's part of the documentation -- "spec" might be a strong word. ;)

    If you want to do that simply choose a filename that matches /\d\.\d+_\d/
    or contains TRIAL.

I think we're OK, because these tarballs will be short-lived.  In a worst-case
scenario, the PAUSE behavior changes without us knowing and a TRIAL tarball
accidentally becomes official as far as CPAN goes.  We could repair that with
either an X.Y.Z.1 CPAN-only release or a new canonical ASF bugfix release.
