there is a unicode LINE SEPARATOR (which is proposed to add as white
space in XML 1.1) but probably the regexp engine ought be persuaded to
do as XML does and consider any cr nl or cr nl pair as matching the
end-of-line regular expression. You'd also want the matching to be
capable of matching across line bounderies of course.
(that is like emacs rather than sed: . matches any non line end
character so .* doesn't eat your whole file, but [^a] matches any
character not an a (including line ends).
