The idea is to provide secure proof of key release. That is, server visibility of the complete key lifecycle as asserted by the CDM.

The key release message is an assertion from the CDM that it no longer has a copy of the key. It needs to be delivered reliably to the application server, so the CDM should store it until it received a key release ack from the application server. This includes storing it one shutdown/startup cycles. When the app starts up it needs to get any stored, unacknowledged key release messages from the CDM to deliver to the application server.
