I don't see how adding expression or <Location> support as
necessitating, or benefiting in a meaningful way, from the deprecation
/ movement of the "other" directives.  I am assuming the *match
directives could either a) provide their own contexts for the
back-references to work or b) simply have their 2nd parameter
evaluated the way it is today.
