Because you are asking specifically for regexes, I might be able to give an explanation.
Regular expressions have, let's say, the tendency to grow. It's more or less code, so they grow naturally. Readability, however, diminishes extremely fast with regexes when compared to regular code.
And hey, I wouldn't mind a builtin type for regular expressions either if this makes things considerably easier. :)
Is it time again to bring up my regex AST idea?
