Do you have a link to your "technical definition of regression?" I've worked for a number of companies where a regression simply means hunting for a bug that had been closed and re-opening it. Regression testing is testing closed bugs to see if they've been re-introduced. Since it's mostly QA, determining if a bug is a regression or not certainly does not require intimate knowledge of the code.
Unless you have some formal standard supporting your position, I'd suggest being a little less authoritative on the matter?
