--- Comment #1 from Pedro F. Giffuni <pfg at FreeBSD.org> ---
I am not sure this can be classified as a regression.

It is certainly a change in behavior with the idea of being more compatible
with GNU sed: some people may be moving from linux to FreeBSD and may
appreciate the compatibility.

Standards don't force either behavior though, and I do see it would be somewhat
advantageous to do some things different than GNU sed, but I am completely
agnostic here.

If we revert to the previous behavior I would prefer it be done fast but OTOH,
the damage is already done for 11.0.
