Comment(by scribu):

 > However, why do you really need two new tables? Wouldn't one work? The
 one table could link two posts with a third ID that links to a
 taxonomy_term or another post for context.

 Main reason is that it's meant to allow arbitrary data, like creation
 date, etc. Also, it's a lot easier to CRUD, using the metadata_*()
