If I understand the zshexpn(1) man page[*] correctly (but it is not
clear about how the parameter expansion is done in the pattern field),
I think this is a bug:

prunille:~> incl="(-|)include"
prunille:~> echo ${input##(-|)include ##}
prunille:~> echo ${input##$incl ##}
include foo

  In the expansions discussed below that require a pattern, the form of
  the pattern is the same as that used for filename generation; see the
  section `Filename Generation'.  Note that these patterns, along  with
  the  replacement text of any substitutions, are themselves subject to
  parameter expansion, command substitution, and arithmetic expansion.
