Oddly accepted RegExps

These three RegExps don't appear valid, even after reading the Annex B, but
they do behave consistently in both Chrome and Firefox. They are listed
here with equivalent regexps:

- `/[[]/` -> `/\[\[\]/`
- `/[]]/` -> `/(?!)/` (i.e. nothing)
- `/a{,,/` -> `/a\{,,+/`

Is this a spec bug or an implementation bug in the parsing?
