This feature sounds like overkill; if one needs regular expressions to
 match element names, then something would seem to be wrong with the 
design of the language being styled.

In the case of `h1`/`h2`/`h3`/`h4`/`h5`/`h6`, the elements are a 
historical artifact and shouldn't exist and in practice one should 
rarely ever need to use more than `h1` and `h2` given the HTML5 
outline algorithm.

In the case of `ruby`/`rt`, it'd be less verbose to write a selector 
without a regular expression and in practice you won't want to style 
those elements the same anyway.
