Not only eggs but most ingredients at room temperature will help all the ingredients incorporate better

And, you can place them in a bowl of warm water to speed it along.

Absolutely. When making a recipe that involves creaming butter and sugar, the room temperature eggs will emulsify with the fat creating a better crumb. Eggs also foam (whip to full volume) better when room temperature. This includes whites. Whites always whip to better volume with room temperature, warm and are older.
