I don't think it's a doc bug. The whole point of the feature is that
you can assign constant numbers to groups, so they don't change if you
add/remove parens.

If it can suddenly throw a regexp error, just because you've added 
a paren around an other paren then it pretty much defeats the
prupose of the feature.
