No, it will not totally address the discrepancy with regex, but at least it will allow as to change the behavior of flags in subpatterns. And we always can convert a pattern to a subpattern (surround by "(?:" and ")").

For now Python re module is only one regular expression implementation in which flags in the middle of the expression affect all expression. [1]
