On the point of DLS's, are there any example points like the regex one you posted Axel? I'm curious as to how you would do the transform

It seems to make certain specific function calls look very different from a typical function call, the arguments passed in are not very clearly explained in the draft or wiki, and I have difficulty imagining anyone actually using these for anything. I would love to hear a solid case for these (I've been looking for the past few nights, but nothing has shown up). Template literals are great, but the `tagging` thing seems fishy for the vast majority of applications.

I'm not saying they shouldn't be included in harmony, i'm just very interested in finding out what practical task they are meant to accomplish
