I don't like ^ either (I've had bad experiences in the past with it),
but tell me:  Is there anything that's _not_ a globbing char for zsh?

Yes, that question is facetious, but you probably get my point -- zsh
has gone nuts with giving special meanings to various characters, and
in general, unless you just give up and only use `A-Z and .', you can't
really win at this game.
