The last few posts ^^^ seem to indicate this is a gray area (at best). However, you could circumvent the whole regulator issue entirely by using some of the new servos that are designed for a 2S 7.4V lipo...I have installed two in my micro magic to eliminate the weight of a regulator, as well as eliminating a potential failure point.
I know Hitec makes a bunch now and Futaba has a few of their own..not sure about the other big names, but they can't be far behind. Admittedly this option doesn't do you much good if you already have servos, but it could be a viable option for a new build or a restoration.
