[F&O] regex syntax too limited

I wish to endorse the statements made by Gunther Schadow concerning the 
need to adopt the full Perl 5 regular expression syntax, rather than the 
subset endorsed by the W3C Standards Group.  XSLT2 has the potential to 
become an integral processor and compiler of extremely sophisticated 
content, and as such its requirements for regular expressions 
considerably exceeds the validation only aspects inherent within the XML 
Schema implementation. I would strongly endorse adopting the Perl 5 
regex standard, and at the very least (as per motion #2, making adoption 
of the full set optional for vendors).
