What should \s \w \d match in 5.12?
Message ID:
I had thought in our discussion last year that we had determined that 
these should match only in the ASCII range.  And so, I thought that when 
Yves flipped the switch on the \p{Posix} matches, that these would 
change as well, but that isn't the case:
  perl -E "say chr(0x2028) =~ /\s/"

in blead.

If I'm wrong about the agreement, I would like to start another 
discussion, and my initial position is that they should only match in 
the ASCII range.
