in our registry, we have 4 prefixes for "ec"
ec, enzyme nomenclature, ec-code, enzyme classification

where "ec" is the (global) preferred prefix, and the others are cultivated
from various datasets

so, in a regex, (ec|enzyme nomenclature|ec\-code|enzyme classification)

and the identifier part matches to:

so, putting the prefix in use and provided identifier together, we would
ask whether it matches to
"(ec|enzyme nomenclature|ec\-code|enzyme classification)\:(

we would also want to match fully qualified URIs in a similar manner.
