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
