Is it safe to remove Perl from yum excludes?

We have encountered an issue with latest updates on our CL6 servers in that a conflict has arisen with perl-git as a result of perl being in the excludes section of yum.conf. We added this in on the recommendation of cpanel as I understand the perl installation is maintained by cpanel on these servers and not by the OS.
