Not quite, I suspect – the <!abc> is still zero-width, so unless
quantified zero-width assertions are DWIMmier than what's healthy, this is
likely still equivalent to ^$. I think the following should DWYW, though:
^ [ [ <!abc> . ] * & <name> ] $
... though perhaps there is a shorter way to write [ <!abc> . ]? Feels
like there should be one ...
