Frankly, the RE part was not that complicated. With an exception of
the /s modifier of my solution. Your REs where not bad either. The most
important issue with your RE is hardly taught in books -- properly
anchoring your RE.

The crucial parts to the solution as outlined are (a) SA rule types,
their specifics and peculiarities, and (b) a method to develop and test
your rules, and see the match.

Thus, I suggest carefully re-reading my full explanation. Try to
understand every part of it, and play around with rules to see the
effect of each part for yourself.
