I think follow FAQ explains "Why to register a group" pretty well:

What is the purpose of group registration?
When you register your group or organization, you indicate your official
participation in the network.
Registration allows you to reserve, acquire and control
channels associated with your group name and allows you to provide your
participants with hostname cloaks. Group registration is required to
sponsor a new server.

At some point, registration will be required to create permanent
channels on freenode
