Being aware of the box doesn't help them.  They can't see you're on the 
public register, so they score you based on not being on the public 
register.  This may or may not be fatal depending on what you're trying to 
purchase.  Only times I've noticed anyone mention it is getting a new 
mobile phone contract and ticket inspectors when I ended up without a 
ticket.  In both cases it was an inconvenience that they couldn't verify 
my address that way, but nothing they seemed to have a problem with
