I'd recommend you to change your class system to have a ```foo``` class and a ```bar``` class in addition to your ```foo-xxx-bar``` class if that is what you need for selecting purposes. Executing regular expression on every attribute of the document would be very expensive. Microsoft Edge's layout team would be opposed to this idea.
