could you clarify on this 'dynamic regular expression' some?
this could open up some of the 'conditional matching' we could be missing as
(feels like a neat thing, but we haven't found actual use to it, maybe you
see other things)

do you see parts of the regex-string be built up dynamically based on
- xpath results? to achieve which effects?
- earlier matches? --> I think we cover this by nesting the matchers
- other things?

kind regards,
