I also think that Cap and Tony should switch roles in the films. I know in the comics they didn't want them to pick the expected side of the conflict but I wouldn't buy the film version of Cap going renegade and the film version of Tony siding with the government. I barely bought it from the books. ...ok, maybe I'd buy it from Cap - registration can't sit well with a guy who fought Nazis - but definitely not Tony.
Actually, Tony siding with the government isn't a huge leap in logic. I mean, he's a contractor for them (kinda) and everyone already knows that he's Iron Man, so he doesn't have anything to lose. He only needs an extra push, such as something disastrous happening due to unregistered superheroes, and he'd be signing up.
Meanwhile, we've already established that Cap's faith in authority is shaken in Avengers and it will probably be destabilized even more in his solo movie. Depending on how they proceed with that, we might have more reason to accept that he would be a firm believer in the idea that superheroes can't work properly if people know who they are. Widow and Hawkeye would probably also not want their identities revealed... but then again, they might not be required to register, what with having no superpowers.
As for the others, I honestly don't think they'd care. I can't remember whether or not Thor had any opinion whatsoever and I'm pretty sure that Banner didn't even know it was going on until after it was over. But if we added Spiderman and Ant-Man, who have movies, and maybe a few X-Men and some minor heroes, I think it would work out fairly well.
