It certainly can help.

Being able to follow your nose to more information about the term
(human and/or machine readable) reduces the risk of misunderstanding.
Use of a URI allows independent definition without the risk of naming
clashes.  Terms like owl:sameAs (along with many others from RDFS and
OWL) alow linking of terms. Seems a pretty good combination.
