'#' used as a reference

Just after a quick clarification.

In the example

<Reference URI="#myRefObject">

<Object id="myRefObject">

Is the # simply being used to indicate its a reference? Im sure I read somewhere that you no longer need the # but I cant seem to find it now.

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards
