Would you use bit.ly in academia?

Would you use link shorteners, such as bit.ly and tinyurl.com, to provide more convenient links to sources in academic papers? Would you be allowed to do this?

Butler Cain's trying it, but he's curious to know what you think.

And so am I.

I posted this on Butler's blog already, but we are supposed to use doi addresses. Shorter than the long links; not quite as short as bit.ly. Plus, it solves the permanence problem.
