Nope. You only need the a form of redirect that is transparent to the
end user so their bookmark files etc... will always refer to the original
master controller site. And some similar mods to webcrawlers and caches.

The actual analysis of topology would be separate from serving up pages
and would likely use more than one technique depending on the situation.

Of course all this is hypothetical right now and would have minimal impact
on network operations except for XP operators who have to build out more
colo rack space....
