In many countries, death certificates can only be given with actual physical proof of death. Otherwise, very long "washout" periods have to be met. It can turn out to be administrative nightmares for families. So, to recover and identify bodies has its importance.
In France, it takes up to ten years to be declared officially "missing". Although, I dont know if it applies also for plane crashes .
