No, http://search.cpan.org/~jesse/perl-5.12.0-RC3/pod/perl5120delta.pod#Implicit_strictures
is the right document you should look at.

Implicit stricture means when you say "use 5.12.0" it automatically
enables strict, in addition to bringing in new language features. It
doesn't enable strict to scripts without them.
