If I am understanding, your point is that registering my copyright (and then taking action against an alleged infringer) allows the winning party to claim costs/fees - even if it is the other party. While I do think it is rather strange that registering my images would benefit the other party (in the event they win) I think it is even stranger that they can't claim costs/fees if I haven't registered.

Yes, provided that the infringement occurred after registration.
