> 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.
