Discussion on: Asking for review on non-string regular expressions

The power of regular expressions in my opinion is to be able to encapsulate complex logic in a few characters with a standardized syntax. Being able to do the same type of thing on an array of JavaScript objects might open up some options, but the stream operations of map, reduce, etc are already powerful and flexible so this would need to provide something either different, cleaner, simpler, or more concise. However I do understand what it is doing and sometimes it's good to build tools and then see what unforseen things they can do after you have them to mess around with.
