The Valar decide that in preparation for Dagor Dagorath the Free Peoples of Light need to be well-informed if any of their battle plans are to succeed. So while Mandos rounds up the heroes of multiple Ages, Races and Cultures (non-dwarves), Mahal is tasked with building areas from which the different races will be able to view the history of the fight against the Dark Powers. He knows this is the loophole he has been waiting for, because surely these races long separated by death will now need to communicate somehow, for battle planning of course.
If some long parted loves happen to come together earlier than originally planned, well isn't that a lucky coincidence.
