You can make the regular expression you use
(?#Must contain letters) and RT will say "Input must match [Must
contain letters]".  You could probably use a localization trick with
en.po to change "Input must match" also, although I'm not sure where
else RT uses that phrase.

The combination of these should clean up the messages a bit.
