You register style that is not defined in WP. If you want to echo out different stylesheet for example, you register it first… so in your code you can refer to it by its name. Ex. wp_enqueue_style('my-registered-style); It also lets you define any dependencies, so that the system can output those styles as well. You do not need to register default style.css file.
It’s just the WordPress convention or best practice. If you are developing theme for public consumption make sure to register it, if you’re managing the site your self then you can simply load the stylesheet however it makes sense to you.
