Seems reasonable to me, but I'll let others with deeper knowledge comment there.

The \L is not related to PCRE -- it is simply \L.  This is kind of an
intermediate form (as I understand) that gets replaced with
$LinkPattern in BuildMarkupRules() in pmwiki.php.  I'm not sure why
$LinkPattern isn't used directly from the start...?  I see
$LinkPattern isn't initialized until after stdmarkup.php is loaded --
maybe there's some inter-relationship there that makes earlier
initialization of $LinkPattern awkward and so it's easier to have the
intermediate \L?
