You should note that one benefit of using hdl.handle.net is a strong institutional commitment to persistence which is backed up by its widespread use across many communities.
 hdl.handle.net links are very likely to continue to work as long as there are significant communities of handle users.  It may be more difficult for a single institution using
handles to make strong claims about persistence.

This raises a question: what happens if my institution is no longer able to run our handle server? Naïvely, I assume that our handles would not persist. What really happens in that case?
