Any-breed registries

Has anyone registered their horse with one of the registries that are open to all breeds and colors? Has anyone found any benefits to doing so? I guess some have tracking/locator programs, which might have some benefit in the case of a lost of stolen horse. Other than that, are they just a gimmicky waste of money, or have you found good reasons to register your horse through any of these?

I'm thinking some like the
Performance Horse Registry
International Grade Horse Association
American Trail Horse Association
Universal All Breed Horse Registry International
and I'm sure many others...

Extra show classes to go in. Mine are reg. ANSA (Australian national saddle horse association) Because its an extra hack and led classes at shows. When I start jumping/dressage more seriously ill get my guy registered EA, then i can ride in official dressage/eventing stuff..

I was looking into it for a while, but decided to go with the American Quarter Pony registry for my own mare. We are now in the process of filling out the forms. I'm doing this just for competition (not that she needs to be reg. for what a do...;p) as well as breeding possibly in the future.
She has no bloodlines as far as i know, however to be reg. with the AQPA my mare doesn't need to be purebred, just be of the correct height & have desirable looks & conformation.

I'm thinking of registering my MFTxTWH with the Preformance Horse Registry. His registration options are pretty limited, but I think it will increase his value and look better if I ever show him. i.e, "My MFT cross is a Performance Horse"

It sounds kinda silly, but a lot of people like the sight (and bragging rights) of 'Dual Registered'. And, the PHR is a bigger, fancier registry to make up for the smaller, not really fancy at all, registry I would also be getting papers from.

PHR: roughly $75 for registration (I think a little more)
PSHR (Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry: $20 registration.

I know he's 'just a gaited cross' but his temperament and conformation are just exceptional. If he was just a regular, day-to-day crossbreed I either wouldn't buy him, or buy him and not bother with registries.

Wait! I'll fix it....
