Comment (by dd32):

 The reasoning for saying it like that, Is that Meta for objects always has
 a primary target, which is where the majority of the meta goes in 99% of
 scenario's, which is followed by a few other related spurs, which 10% of
 sites might use 1% of the time on average.

 To make a specific table for (for example) taxonomy relationships to
 objects would probably fall into the 95/5% use case bin, where for the 5%
 that need it, 75% of those will find a prefix a working solution. The
 others will feel the need for a new table. Those that need the new table
 in the specific implementations are free to do so if they desire the extra
 performance gains that it may give them.
