I suspect you will run into problems when mixing complement with the
Kleene closure (zero or more concatenations) operator (and other
operators generating an infinite number of strings in the associated
So one safe way is to admit the usual set operations on character
classes only, and letting regular expressions having only the usual
operators acting on character classes.
If you don't use such infinite generating operators, the restriction
forms a graded algebra, and it seems me you want the complement with
respect to the grading (length of strings) in the generated language.
