Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's like filling out your W-2 (income tax) forms when you get a new job.  It is required, but by then, you already have the job.  So I really fail to see the comparison.  

What is important about the Oath, is that you can't be held responsible for anything before it.  You're basically saying, Ok, from ... right...  NOW, I am officially in charge.
