Probably not, except my mental incapacity.  See my reply to Stefan.

(If someone changes it, note that the SRE `**' form is currently
implemented separately -- SRE requires N and M.)

By the way, I don't understand this change (which isn't in ChangeLog,
like quote a few (many?) changes):

revision 1.13
date: 2004/04/23 21:25:58;  author: monnier;  state: Exp;  lines: +15 -25
(rx-syntax): Move sregex style syntax to code.
(rx-bracket, rx-check-any, rx-any): Clean up name space.

I think taking the simple syntax symbols out of the alist in the first
change makes it less clear, and what's wrong with using `bracket'
dynamically bound, purely locally (the second change).

In an earlier change, why did the years I put in the copyright notice
need to change from `2001, 2003, 2004' to `2001, 03, 2004'?  If that's
required, `copyright-update' should be changed to do it, and the rules
should be spelt out, but the original form is what the GNU maintainer
guide actually prescribes, though if I remember correctly, Moglen said
the `04' form is OK.
