Brian, basically you need to be able to claim a province to be able to get it easier through a war, it also gives you a reason to go to war without unnecessarily raising war exhaustion and losing stability. Coring the province will help keep revolts down (to a point) and allows you to rake in income from the province. In effect, it makes the province worth something to you.
