To detractors, regional rail means 'transitization' of commuter rail service, a lowering of standards for speed and comfort in an attempt to be all things to all markets.
The 'commuter rail' operations of most other North American transit properties are not meant to serve as many different travel markets as the European 'regional rail' systems; they gear their service towards a single market of middle-to-upper class downtown office workers who drive to a station and ride an express train downtown.
The desire to fit in to either the commuter rail or regional rail model mustn't be used to justify inefficiencies in the present operation, and mustn't be allowed to dictate operating philosophy of any new services.
