What is the purpose of these items? I just don't get it.

Are salvage items there only to be salvaged?

Trophy items (with text in grey) are all sold with the "sell junk" option at merchants. So I figure that, generally speaking, that's their purpose.

Salvage items can also be sold, but the difference is that you can get crafting materials applying a salvage kit on them.

Other trophy items won't appear as salvageable, but they won't be considered junk either (their text will be white instead of grey), because some NPC collects them (indicated on the item description). You can return them to the NPC that claims them or you can sell them.

Some of the items that are used for Events are also labeled as "trophy" items. – FAE Aug 25 '12 at 19:49
Yeah, Mystic Coins (reward for daily achievment) are the ones that jump quickest to mind. – Raven Dreamer Aug 25 '12 at 20:56

Essentially, yes. They are there to provide you with materials. Trophies are not designed to provide any benefits, yet may be amusing items such as flowers e.t.c.
