Since I'm interested in digital preservation I've been contemplating the subject of creating permenant Permalinks using PURLs.

Two problems that I still can't find a way around are:

-Since most people copy and paste URI from the browsers' controls when linking, they will end up ignoring the PURL, which will have resolved by then, when linking to blog posts, for instance.

-Assuming that users do copy the Permalink designator which is given as a PURL, pingback mechanisms do cannot perform autodiscovery because of the absence of X-Pingback HTTP header in the response of PURL, and what seems to be an implementation problem on the part of pingback clients that refrain from following on the 302 redirect.

Do you have insights in this subject?
