In fairness, Tony deleted all the database to protect those heroes that wouldn't sign back up with Osborn running the show rather than himself... but did so in a way that Osborn had to willfully abuse the system before it would take effect. Those still wanting to stick with the system may re-verify themselves, but then the choice is on them, rather than on Tony for promising them to keep their secrets from villains and then being unable to support it.
EVERYONE we've seen go "free agent" has apparently passed the training, or was exempted from it due to previous government service, to my knowledge. Jackpot's the only new hero we've seen under this, and it seems fair to me to assume she was trained at the same time as the original Order, Gadget, and Paragon. (i.e., before anyone else noticed.)
Norman knows Ant-Man registered under an alias, since Tony and company had caught that earlier, (unless Tony deleted that too), just not that Ant-Man falsified how he got the suit, according to the Thunderbolts issue. It also doesn't hurt that nobody is around to contradict Ant-Man's story of how he got the suit... everyone that knows better is either dead or in no position to argue.
As for Daredevil, recent interviews show that Norman's been preparing to move on him in force, so his days of ignoring the SHRA are done. As for why Tony let him slide, that seems to be fairly obvious: Matt's created such a public firestorm the last time anyone accused him of being Daredevil that no sane man would get drug into trying to prove it again... especially a man that knows Daredevil's professionalism and doesn't particularly care if the act's enforced when there's a legitimate reason to ignore it, like Tony was.
Not sure at all what's so confusing about Area 42 at the moment, although DURING the Civil War it was pretty confusing. Right now, it's a Blastaar-occupied outpost and lost to Osborn and HAMMER.
Does the public know that there IS a post-SI Thunderbolts? It was my understanding that they were a secret.
The origins of the Order seem pretty well explained to me. What's the problem with it now? (MY problem with the Order is that they still seem to have their powers post-SI, when it was Starktech that allowed them to have them, and all Starktech's gone now.)
The Blue Marvel's bit doesn't seem so bad either. He's legally too old to force into government service now. Same for the Reservation or on what is legally foreign soil... the US's Superhuman Registration Act fails there. Urich not being able to find evidence of Act violations makes sense, if you realize Norman's killing anyone that knows too much about what he's doing, which makes perfect sense. As for the mutants, they are ALL legally registered, by Executive Order as part of the 198, so until they violate the terms of that, they got a free ride. Under Osborn, they got a free ride because he and Emma cut a deal behind the scenes. Makes sense to me.
