It seems odd to use the registrar ID for this. You'd be saying, essentially, that any user authenticated by an IdP registered by InCommon was assumed to be engaged in "US research" (however that's defined) but that any user (even the same user) authenticated by an IdP registered by some other registrar was assumed not to be engaged in an eligible activity. That seems like conflating two concepts, particularly in the longer term.

I realise that you may feel there's nothing else available to represent the concept you want; I'm just saying this isn't what the registrationAuthority is supposed to be for at all.
