I'd vote for making this new code look like the rest of it, to wit
hardwire the values.  As-is, you're expending code space and cycles
on flexibility that's entirely illusory --- if we ever decided to
change these properties of TEXT, we'd have way more work to do than
just fixing the new regexp functions.
