Not sure what you mean by flip the regex, since the completion doesn't
do any flipping.  It's simply that you can do

   M-x man RET 3 SPC cos RET
   M-x man RET cos(3) RET

and both work (no completion involved).  Admittedly, part of the reason
why they both work, is the desire to be able to see the completion
candidates within a particular section without having to move point
backward within the minibuffer.
