The WGs decided on 9/27 to fix this bug by adding the following sentence to the
fourth bullet in section 7.6.1:

If no strings were matched by the nth capturing subexpression the back-reference
is accepted as matching a zero-length string.

The WGs also decided that back-references should be spelt with a hyphen.
