I believe the same scenario applies to credit cards (in the UK anyway).

  Hallo NG,

  If the task would be to represent an ISBN-number with a regex
  would you agree that this canīt be done sufficiently with the current
version
  of XML Schema regexes, because the last digit is calculated?

  Is it planned to do something like this, perhaps in the next version?

  Provided that the first assumption is true, can you think of other
"common" use-cases
  that regexes canīt do yet?

  Thank you

  Rainer
