It makes it easy to insult people in RDF.

More seriously, it's mostly just designed as a drop-in replacement for
danbri's old Wordnet RDF stuff which went offline some time ago. Though
this is based on a newer version of Wordnet and has SKOSey stuff thrown
in as a bonus.

If somebody decides that wordnet:Crack is accurate and specific enough
for them, even though it's a class that covers sound effects, Class A
drugs and fissures, then that's fine by me. If they want more specific
classes, then those are provided too.
