This matches fr-zaza as well, which is not a language I'm aware of.
Didn't Bert ask for exact semantics in such a case ?

Anyway, as someone else said it, regexps are fine as long as they are
not required. Then, if they happen to be a powerful feature (no doubt
they will), good style sheet editors will provide a suitable user interface,
won't they ?
