"Stuff" is placed in different folders depending on what the specification is. For instance, in JARs, the manifest is in the meta-inf directory. If you write the new tag files in JSP 2.0, and actually compile them to distribute as a JAR, those compiled classes are placed somewhere in the meta-inf directory as I remember.

So, its significance: it's used. By what? That should be your question. But don't ask it. (I don't like open-ended questions .. go research.)
