The documentation for base states: Unless you are using the fields pragma, consider this module discouraged in favor of the lighter-weight parent.

Any reason for not using parent instead?

I think we're using base because it has been a core module for so long, but:

parent was first released with perl v5.10.1

So, that may be good enough.
