Yes, it is necessary.
Reply to above:
Anne, that is simply false. Some thing it is a good idea, and some don't.
But it is NOT required to register arms.
You really ought to label opinion clearly. You *think* it is a good idea,
but it is *not* a requirement.
My reply to Tibor,
That is not an opinion. Arms should be registered to use them within the
context of the SCA. When I registered my arms I took the right to be known
by that heraldry. I do not wish to know of others doing deeds in the SCA
with my heraldic name. To disregard this rule is as rude as wearing elf ears
to an event. If I saw someone with a spiff design that was in blatent
conflict with mine I would first ask politely that they change it and try to
register it. If they refused I would head to the best herald I know and
lodge a formal complaint. You might feel the same way if someone was using
your SS#, your licence plate, or your credit card.
