Using PURLs for spec URLs

I want to propose using PURLs [1] for URLs to specs.  Instead of
pointing directly to the location of an Internet resource, a PURL
points to an intermediate resolution service. The resolution
service associates the PURL with the actual URL and returns that
URL to the client, which can then complete the transaction in the
normal fashion.  Many RDF-based systems use PURLs these days.
The or whatever can be allocated for that.
