The future will be based on data
There is plenty of value in individual registers as authoritative sources of trustworthy core reference data - the first beta register, the country register, is being used by services such as the e-petition service already. Over time the country register will also replace many of the country lists published on GOV.UK.  So individual registers are good, but an ecosystem of linked registers is even better. That’s why every register needs to be designed with the wider ecosystem in mind.
