I think web browsers should color code SLURPLs so we know what kind  
of link they are. Purple would be good.   ;-)

Seriously, this is a great idea. It drives me crazy as a teacher to  
put together a page full of resource links for my students, and by  
the end of the semester, half the links are dead. Often a search will  
turn up the same information, but at a new location. Persistent URLs  
and SLURLs would be a boon. Now, I wonder if I will actually do it.
