Anyone know about RPSI or Westfalen registrations?

I have a half ATA registered mare. Her dam line was never registered thus unknown. More breed registries require 4 gen back for offspring, but I was looking and saw there is a pre-mare book for RPSI or Westfalen. She was a ATA premium foal, so I’m thinking of getting her approved for either. However, would her offspring be eligible for full papers?

Westfalen:

For full “pink” papers, the sire must be in Stallion Book 1 or 2 and hte dam must be in the main section = Mare Book 1 or 2. Foals are eligible for a certificate of pedigree (COP) or “white papers” if both parents are in the breed books - Sire Appendix Stallion Book or Pre Stallion Book and dam Mare Book 1 or Mare Book 2 or Pre-Mare Book / or Sire Stallion Book 1 and dam Pre-Mare Book

So if she is in the pre-mare book, as I understand it, her foals would only be eligible for a certificate of pedigree, not full papers.
