People get confused. And think because the air is blowing out hard. That they are getting a lot of air. When they aren't.
I understand your point, you do not want to restrict airflow.
You remind me of my HVAC friend , when I told him I was going to put wood registers in the great room, ya would a thought I just insulted his Mother.
He did put in an extra run and I went oversize , also its only 5 registers out of 15 that are wood.
Also once the basement is finished I'll heat it also ( but it won't take much to heat it as I'm at 63f waist level in single digit weather( no inefficiencies here))
