The reason for not using the GUI in the examples is that the files with the sample code should be ready to run without assumptions of whether the user registered the XP before or not. Another reason is that it is easier to test an XP from SQL Query Analyzer by registering and de-registering over and over again by selecting the code and clicking on the run button (to execute only that portion of code) rather than using the GUI.
