In particular, if I come in with no visa (ie as a US passport holder) do I need to do any sort of registering? If so, at a hotel, or at OVIR, or ?
I think there's something about "must register within five days" or "three working days" and I've also seen something about "not needed for stays less than 15 days" but all these assertions are of dubious validity and may or may not still be accurate and current.
So it would be tremendously helpful to get a definitive statement on this, thank you! (Might be useful to update the KZ Visa page as well?)
Since 2016 no changes in registration rules and laws.
US passport holders get registered at the border crossing points. On arrival at passport control you'll get a migration card on a piece of paper and 2 stamps. That means you're registered for 30 days (as long as your visa free period).
Don't need to go to OVIR.
