I hope we don't plan on changing _anything_ in this regard before the

How is the age of the bug relevant? Searching for ASCII characters
with \ca matches different characters than searching for ASCII class
characters with [:ascii:]. Surely that's a bug that needs fixing,
rather than a feature to be added later isn't it?
We're not required to follow the spec, but it's not good to use 2
different definitions of ASCII.
