Atomic groups and possessive quantifiers appear to be relatively new:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expressions
for instance, has no mention of either that I found.

http://www.regular-expressions.info/atomic.html
http://www.regular-expressions.info/possessive.html
seemed pretty clear to me.  If they accurately describe what you are
adding, they might be a starting point for the needed new manual
sections.  They should include a warning about carefully ordering
alternatives lest one prune too much.
