May you point me at a use-case, where comment-start-skip as regexp is needed?
I.e. a case where comment-start as string wouldn't do it.

E.g. in C++, comment-start is typically "//" which won't find the
beginning of a /*...*/ comment.


Okay, see. Thanks.

With different ways to start a comment, the regexp seems inevitable.
However, emacs lisp and related should not need it.

Given it's not defined if not needed, the backward-search could speed up in 
this cases.
