I think it is the definition of the range in Regex. If you test it with 
perl , this had the same behaviour :

Since Regex are implemented in many other programming language , I think 
mono's regex should have the same behaviour of other language ( like 
perl, or .NET ).

This little perl script show that perl match is based on ascii values :


print "[ matches\n" if "[" =~ /[A-a]/i; print "_ matches\n" if "[" =~ 
/[A-a]/i; print "e matches\n" if "e" =~ /[A-a]/i;

#This print :

#[ matches
#_ matches
#e matches
