Really interesting post. Was also thinking that a potential theoretical advantage of birth registration, apart from helping people engage in their society, is the fact that, to get the output desired, it would require substantial interaction of the state (and several levels of the state) with the people..this way, working towards increasing this indicator, will require greater interaction among a larger set of actors, which may in turn promote some creative solutions and create a system that can be used creatively for other problems (such as UID in India).
