What benefit does keeping it in the registry gain? Keeping things there makes it more difficult to get them out later (have to use specialized tooling); one has to consider where to store it (the registry is not really the simplest datastore); one has to consider possible loss of data in the event of a corrupted registry; and I can't see any real benefit.
