You are missing the fact that it's impossible to make all functions
related to regexps begin with "regexp-", because some of them are also
related to lists or strings or buffers or email or projects.  Or are
you suggesting to have dozens of different aliases for each function,
one each for every class to which it could possibly belong?

How big is this "some of them" you are talking about? Are they really about regexp, or another topic? And are you implying that because we cannot do all of them, we should do any of them?

"Giant"?  I see 11 hits (in "emacs -Q").

In "Emacs -Q" you are correct. Without "-Q" the list is here https://www.ideone.com/35kbNi. On that list only line 116-127 are relevant to what I search.
