For even more clarity, it's perhaps worth mentioning that in gTLDs this is mainly an artifact of the EPP data model (which itself inherited aspects from earlier data models).

Registries (e.g. ccTLD registries) which take other approaches might not need the registration of a host object (or equivalent, in their model).
