Personally, I don't think the individual items themselves are particularly relevant to the lore, it's more what the items represent and where they are coming from. As I mentioned above, I believe we are being lead towards the Realm of Heroes, and these items are significant only in that they evoke certain past encounters. If my theory is true, I think the idea is elegant in its subtlety.
