This was in today's Mercury News, an interview with someone named Brent

Q:  Why did Mary travel (some 70 miles from Nazareth) in her condition?
    Couldn't Joseph have registered for her?

A:  Yes.  The only reason Mary would travel is because she wanted Jesus
    to be born in the place of Joseph's ancestry.  That would give him
    extra rights, including a tax break.
