Note that Stefan actually says "moving" is ok.

That indicates to me that emacs is really the only package
using that specific version of regex.* -- which is also the
idea you get if you look at the revision log for the files.

So is the really any reason to keep those file in sync
between gnulib and emacs repositories -- or could we
just continue to maintain the files under the emacs
repository (where they were copied some time ago) ?

I still don't see why this is necessary if emacs is the only
package using those files ... it must be possible to find out
if there are other packages using it (were there other symlinks
to them which have been broken?)

Maybe the original files could be made "read-only" using Karl's
code, in case we want to keep (an obsolete copy) of them in
gnulib.  IMO, it would probably be better just to cvs remove
them from the gnulib repository (provided emacs was the only 
package using them).
