How useful is the Canon online product registration site?

So I got a 5DMK3 and will receive it today. I got it from GetitDigital (ebay). Then I wondered if Canon's website would be able to check the authenticity of the "USA unit" when I register it later.

It looks like Canon's website lets you register any serial number in there. It only validates the correct date (cannot be before the release date) and the number of characters the SN has for that model.

All along I thought that was not the case since I registered several lens, flashes and cameras there.
