I think we misunderstood.
My remark is only about the case with only 1 observation found as the result of a search.
- For sure, generating a direct link to this observation is less ressource consuming than generating a page that contains a link to the same observation. (Anyway the server has to generate at least a link, and I say that it is enough, the server should not do more, as it does now unfortunately).
- Moreover, this useless intermediate page has a performance issue.
It is impossible that the current behavior is less ressource consuming for the server.
Because what I suggest is stricly less than what is presently done.
