No, you don't _need_ reg3. A systems estimator is never needed unless you want to impose constraints across equations on the coefficients. There is nothing wrong with limited-information (single-equation) estimation of each equation in turn. A systems estimator can provide efficiency; but on the other hand any misspecification means that every equation's coefficients can become inconsistent if one equation is flawed.
