Comment (by petiepooo):

 Can {{{/abc/i}}} be shorthand for {{{/[Aa][Bb][Cc]/}}} when it gets
 processed?  That makes the human expressions easier to read, and leaves
 the nasty verbose stuff for internals.  I believe it would also allow the
 concatenation operation mentioned above (it becomes
 {{{/[Aa][Bb][Cc]DEF/}}}), but would not handle addition of more
 insensitive strings without explicitly making the additions insensitive.
 Eg. {{{redef += /DEF/i;}}}
