For validation purposes only you would not need to create a custom
foxfilter function. You can use

(:foxcheck name if="intext {$$name} PageName" ... :)

where 'name' is the input field name and 'PageName' the name of the
page which holds a list of 'authorised for registration' strings.
You find a definition for the custom intext conditional markup here:

If page PageName needs to be read protected you may need to change the
intext function to allow for reading the page content even if a user
has no read access (use 'ALWAYS' instead of 'read' in RetrieveAuthPage
or use ReadPage)
