So you can organize and group them where necessary

Goal ID and goal sets
Every goal you create is assigned a numeric ID, from 1 to 20. Goals are grouped into sets of up to 5 individual goals. Goal sets allow you to categorize the different types of goals for your site. For example, you might track downloads, registrations, and receipt pages in separate goal sets. These sets appear in your reports as links beneath the Explorer tab in many reports.

the sets appeared when more goal types were introduced. They were meant to classify goals by type (URL, time, pages, event).

Nowadays sets are really just used for goal grouping in reports.
