Mike, thanks A LOT for working on this; I think it's a great starting point.

Maybe, to move forward, we can split this into two subtasks; definining the
character classes and using them, and then reduce the remaining verbosity? I
*believe* the first one should be less controversial.

It also seems that applying the patch may require some grammar post-tuning; I'm
happy to help with that once we agree on how to proceed.
