Is it possible to create route classes in a base module and then have all derived instance routes inherit from the parent class? Kinda like so --

    use Dance;
    get '/' => sub {
        my $name = param 'name';
        return "name is required for all GETs" unless $name;
    post '/' => sub {
        my $id = param 'id';
        return "id is required for all POSTs" unless $id;
    use MyDance;
    use base 'Dance';
    get '/' => sub {
        my $foo = param 'foo';
        .. do something with $foo and $name but only if $name is defined ..

For bonus points, it would be nice to have base route classes only for routes that end with a '.:format'. For example, only for routes that request 'resource.json'

Is the above possible?
