Yeah: regexp_replace is strict.

In Oracle's universe that probably makes sense, but to me it's not
sensible. Why should "unknown" flags produce a non-unknown result?
I find it hard to envision many use-cases where you wouldn't actually
have the flags as a constant, anyway; they're too fundamental to the
behavior of the function.
