I believe that most or all of the syntax rules in the draft spec are agreeable to everyone (or most everyone) at this point and I am hesitant to revisit them without strong justification. Nevertheless I'll open this up for discussion in case anyone want to weigh in.
Saašha - I don't imediately see how regular expressions relate to this spec. Could you provide an example?
Also, the square brackets provide both start and closing delimiters. The suggestion to use 'c' instead does not cover an end delimiter.
