7.       Wildcard for prefixes - If some statements should be checked
regardless prefix, it should be used //{{*}}, //{{*}}-NEXT, //{{*}}-SAME
and etc.

I, too, think wildcard and regular expression for prefixes will make it
hard to read the test files. Currently I can highlight the prefix and focus
on a specific test, but that won't be possible when these features are
used. I prefer an easy to read but long test file to a hard to read but
compact one.
