I'm reasonably pro-registration, and often defend Iron Man, but I think saying he behaved nobly throughout Civil War is going a bit far. He recruited super-villains to win the war, and that was a step too far. Captain America tolerated the Punisher, but he is nowhere near as bad as bullseye, venom and the Green Goblin.

In the end, Iron Man was right, but the means he used were wrong at times. I suppose it boils down to the classic question of whether the end justifies those means?

I don't know. I'd be willing to wager that Punisher has a higher body count than all of the three aforementioned combined. The Punisher's entire life is dedicated to taking down the criminal underworld, leading him to kill many mob types along with many lower powered super villains. Green Goblin, Venom and Bullseye are there to torment their proper nemesis (Spidey, Spidey and Daredevil, respectively) and only occasionally kill someone not related to their nemesis.

The villains used in Civil War didn't kill anyone (at least not published), whereas the Punisher killed four in the regular series, and even a few more in the Punisher War Journal tie ins.
