Question about English (US)

Could somebody check if I have a good grasp of the level of formality among these words?

1. with respect to (very very formal)
2. in regard to (formal)
3. with regard to (formal)
4. concerning (formal)
5. regarding (a little formal)
6. about (casual)

#1~4 are rarely used when speaking unless in legal or professional settings, while #5 is common in speaking too when you want to sound educated or stress the word after.... and lastly #6 is used everywhere
