It was accidental? And here I thought it was a clever way to catch
gnarly characters. The hyphen in the 2nd regexp means "from space
(U+0020) to comma (U+002C)", i.e. expresses a range that matches the
same characters
  [ !"#$%&'()*+,]
matches. Many of these characters are a pain to type into an XSLT
regexp, and thus a range like this seemed like a nice way to catch
them.
