Then VC-Dir could provide, for example:

* u             vc-dir-mark-unregistered
This is implemented as well:

Here's a somewhat more subtle option for your consideration:

Personally, I'm likely to never use vc-dir-mark-unregistered because I tend to leave unregistered files around (ones that should really be in gitignore, but it's a pain to add them). And adding unregistered files one-by-one is not too much trouble, it's a relatively rare operation (or you can always use 'M'). So I would leave that command unbound.

Marking "registered" files, though, could be made more streamlined. Right now I have to navigate to files in all different statuses present in the current repo and press 'M' for each status.

However! vc-dir-mark-all-files has a special behavior when it's called with C-u: it tries to mark all files in the current VC-Dir buffer. Which is pretty useless when we also have files in incompatible statuses because vc-next-action fails with that fileset.

So what we could do, is have vc-dir-mark-all-files call vc-dir-mark-registered in that case instead. This way the former command becomes significantly more useful, and the latter one doesn't really need a separate key binding. And I'm sure 'C-u M' would become quite handy.
