Re-registering all 3rd party applications (with the exception of about 3 that I know of) is a routine part of an OS upgrade. Most 3rd party apps store their data in a database that is not restored during an OS upgrade. This database also tends to fill up with a lot of junk every time you install and delete an application.
I have upgraded OS's 8 - 10 times on my current device, about the same on my previous device. And I have 61 installed 3rd party applications, so believe me I am aware of the hassle. However, each time I do an upgrade, I recover the memory that was taken up by the user settings database (whatever it may be called) even after re-inputting all my keys and settings. I have it down to a routine now, after an OS upgrade, it takes me a couple hours to get back to where I was (which I consider pretty good actually).
