For example: /^(.{5})+(?<!ab*c)d/ ... can't be rewritten using the (*SKIP)(*FAIL) pattern ...

I don't see how it could be done, but I'm still looking. Certainly the trick has its limits. Still, it's handy in a few situations. However, variable width negative look-behind is, perhaps fortunately, not something one tends to really need very often. :)
