That might be true, but that seems like a weak argument. If anything, it means those others are broken. What is the logic behind "(.*)" returning the entire string (which is what you asked for) and exactly one empty string? Why not two empty strings? 3? 4? 5? Why not an empty string at the beginning? It makes no practical sense.

We will have to spend considerable effort to work around this change and adapt our code to 3.7. The lack of a discussion about backwards compatibility in this, and the other, thread before making this change is also a problem I think.
