Do PURLs impose additional network burdens or performance problems?

The benefits of the additional level of indirection provided by the PURL service come at the price of additional network traffic (two network round trips instead of one). This is no less true for any name resolution service that might be implemented in the future. This is is a reasonable and low-cost tradeoff for increased link reliability and decreased catalog maintenance burdens.
