Yes Cory, In their own towns and regions, among their tribesmen, there is most definately genuine support for the various Sultans and Sheikhs.
After the South Yemen Marxist regime deposed and abolished the reigning dynasties in 1967, some ex-Ruling Families left their Sheikhdoms and Sultanates for exile either temporary or permanent (usually in Saudi Arabia, Britain, Oman).
Other ex-Ruling families opted to stay in the protection of their loyal tribes and population, but still lost much property and all official prestige under the new South Yemeni Marxist regime.
Since Yemen's unification there has been some token property and land restitution. Some articles and interviews of non-Reigning South Arabian Adeni and Yemeni Sultans and Sheikhs can be found amongst a few English language translated Arabic or Yemeni News and political websites.

There were old historic feuds between the two main Tribes of Musabein in the south and the Tribes of the north - Al-Saleh (Ahmed Saif clan) and Al-Fatima (Naji Alawi clan).
Adventually The Al-Habieli Dynasty of The Imams of Sanaa in the north established control and rule.
The British Protectorate of Aden gained influence and control from the 18th-19th Cent.
In 1959 Beihan joined Federation of Arab Emirates.
In 1962 Beihan joined Federation of South Arabia.
The Emir, HH Sheikh Sharif Ahmad Muhsin Al-Habieli (Emir 1903-1935) abdicated in 1935, and his son HH Prince Sharif Hussein bin Ahmad Al-Habieli ruled as Regent 1935-1967.
He was deposed and the Emirate abolished (after the British withdrawal from Aden) in 1967 by the new Marxist regime of South Yemen.
Im not sure if HH Sharif Hussein bin Ahmad was actually ruling as Emir or Regent when deposed in 1967.
Any further information on this would be very helpful and most welcome, thank you.

Qu'aiti Sultanate of Shihr and Mukalla

Qu'aiti State in Hadhramaut.
Qu'aiti Sultanate of Shihr & Mukalla.

Established independent rule 1866 - The Qu'aiti Dynasty.
In 1881 Shihr and Mukalla were united as one Sultanate.
Unlike the Sultanates & Sheikhdoms of Western Aden in The British Aden Protectorate and Federations of Arab Emirates & South Arabia, the Quaiti Dynasty ruled over a large expansive State in the Hadhramaut Eastern region towards the border with Oman & Muscat.
The Sultanate of Shihr & Mukalla's Capital was Al-Mukalla.
In 1888 became British Protectorate.

The Qu'aiti Sultanate Ruling Family were closely connected through a long history of military service to The Nizam of Hyderbad in India.
The last Sultan's father, HRH Sultan Awadh II bin Saleh Al-Qu'aiti (1956-1966) was married to Princess Sahibzadi Nazirunissa Begum, Granddaughter of The 6th Nizam of Hyderbad (Mahmud Ali Pasha).

In 1963 Sultanate became part of the new British Protectorate of South Arabia (1963-1967).
The Protectorate of South Arabia covered the three large Sultanate States of Hadhramaut, in the eastern region of South Arabia furthest away from Aden Protectorate.
The Protectorate of South Arabia ended in 1967.

The last Reigning Sultan of Shihr & Mukalla was HRH Sultan Ghalib II bin Awadh bin Saleh Al-Qu'aiti (Oct 1966-Sept 1967).
He was born in London in 1948.
He was deposed in Sept 1967 and the Sultanate was abolished in Nov 1967 (after the British pulled out of South Arabia) by the new Marxist South Yemen Republic.
Sultan Ghalib II and his family went in to exile to Britain.
Sultan Ghalib II Al-Qu'aitis son & Heir is HH Crown Prince Saleh bin Ghalib Al-Qu'aiti, who was born in London in 1977.

The Quaiti Dynasty Sultanate of Shihr & Mukalla have their own excellent website.

Modern Yemen and The Sultanates & Sheikhdoms.

No Cory, i'd think it most unlikely that any new Federation of Emirates and Sultanates could happen in Yemen with any official Government status.
The Yemen Republic that united North & South Yemen in the 1990s-2000s is a very different place as it includes the former Kingdom of Yemen in the North and the former Sultanates & Sheikhdoms of Aden & Hadhamaut in the South, as well as the long history of the civil wars and the old Marxist regimes legacy of rule in the South.
Also the old Federations and Protectorates were British inforced unions and often unpopular as they limited and controlled the Sultans & Sheikhs freedoms, although gave them protection against unrest and overthrow!
However many, if not most, of the former Sultanates & Sheikhdoms non-reigning families of the South either stayed in South Yemen or have since returned and are living in their Tribal regions and ancestoral homes. Although many of the old Sultanates palaces have become National museums or Government buildings.
It is worth considoring too that in much of the recent unrest and Tribal divisions in Yemen with anti-Salih demos etc on our Tv News programmes, some of this must inevitably include Tribal loyalties and issues of the Sultanates & Sheikhdoms Tribes, even if this is little known or not mentioned on Western European Tv News reports!
