As long as one doesn't include the function that does the Registration then
components that are not used should be smart linked away. Cause even if
you're reading from a resource file there is still the use of the component
inside the form's declaration and thus the compiler as its usage reference.
The only problematic part might be the widgetset backend itself where
things might not be able to be smartlinked away that nicely.
