in thread alternation in regexes: to use or to avoid?

Added to balker's response, it's not that we're trying to achieve, we know other means how to get where we want to, but it's about the principle I've long nourished, (see Anastasius's quote above), and now it doesn't hold water. What i'd love to see, an explanation of someone who knows why regex algorithm exhibits behavior that is CONTRARY to perl lore.
