I suppose having two attributes could be troublesome: what happens if they
are both specified?  Then again, that could be really powerful (talk about
opening your self up to non-intuitive behavior!)  However, if you need to
separate out the behaviors I think modes would work just fine?  All your
regex cases might end up using the same mode, but at least you don't have to
specify yet another tag...

I haven't had the time to follow the whole discussion, but I hadn't seen
anything along the lines of what you proposed before.  It looked interesting
enough that I actually had to stop and reply.  I do suspect something like
this could be useful.
