Why not use '\i' and '\c' from
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#charcter-classes?

Otherwise, you may want '(' and ')' around $NameStartChar.re in $Name.re,
otherwise (to mix variable expansions) it looks like
'...|[&#x203F;-&#x2040;]($NameChar.re)*" and you'll only match
multi-character names when they begin with a character in the range
[&#x203F;-&#x2040;].
