AFAIK we do not need registration at all anymore for openSUSE, let's
obsolete it's usage and tools.

I made the feature public so Stefan Werden who's producing the retail
box can check if he needs suseRegister or not. But at first glance I
don't see use of suseRegister for openSUSE.

Why was it needed in the first place?

suseRegister is needed to register a product for maintenance and
support at Novell. At openSUSE suseregister was used to identify
customer of the  retail box, so that they receive support. As the box
meanwhile is done completely by a 3rd party suseRegister with openSUSE
isn't needed for maintenance nor support.
