    Eric, this seems a bit too optimistic. From our experience, the losses for simultaneous domain and structural changes are higher, even if you do a decent job 301ing whatever you can.

    Also, from experience I would say the effect of the 301 seems to wear off over time (or the dampening factor increases), so it is indeed a good idea to follow up with some of your link sources and inform these fellas about the new URL of the content.
