Just throwing my opinion in:

I like proposal 2 better than proposal 1. Placing a regex-based
constraint on a bash variable assignment doesn't feel right to me.

I slightly prefer 2a over 2b because it feels cleaner. I'm sure it
will break some tools, but I don't have a good feel for the scope of
that breakage.
