If you're completely stuck, there's an undocumented, largely untested, and completely non-conformant option in Saxon - if the flags attribute starts with "!", you can use full Java regular expression syntax in the regex attribute. This may not work perfectly, for example it may disrupt the counting of captured groups in regex-group().

I thought that was what you were going to say (and I should have just looked at the spec before posting, mea culpa). I can't think of any other way to do this with the analyze-string recursive replacing with xsl:sequence...and I'm loathe to change that much since it is working fine! I suppose one answer is to transform the input so it has better/more/different delimiters of some sort, but I'll have to think that through.
Ah well, -James
