IMHO, since sed commands are already explained in the lfs book, it would make sense to continue using sed commands. Perl is a monster all to itself, and may be a potential can of worms....
On the other hand, it offers an opportiunity to introduce basic perl commands, since we are trying to help people learn their linux..
Just my 2-bits...

What about consistency? both ways work, but it would be best to be stay
consistent in this matter, imo.
