You might be grasping at straws, but I do like the idea of there being a Rumpelstiltskin "story" based off mandatory child registration.
Also, we don't see any infants in WHF, and there's a newspaper clipping about weighing babies at a butcher in exchange for their weight in tripe... It doesn't exactly specify if you get the baby back or not... :P
There's a mention also about "Breeder Riots", somehow I don't think pregnant women are allowed to be seen in public in WHF, and for all we know the right to gestation may be monitored also, bringing us back to a twisted version of Rumpelstiltskin.
I still don't quite understand who the Pied Piper is IRL. Was he a German? How did he drive them away? Was it gas? Was it the plague? Originally the story is related to rats, so I'm wondering if it's a plague reference. I'm probably overthinking it, but it's fun to guess!
