It's the simplest (and most successful) solution to the challenge of how do users with many profiles/sites indicate (by their own *choice* - which is key - through a user interface) that they all want them to represent the same person, with an open standard that's discoverable, which for example, the Google Social Graph API exposes for sites to use. rel=me is a widely supported standard for this for both linking to multiple other sites and even just one other profile.
