yes the data of serialized content will have [wpurl] like tag too.as  main
aim was to have a single place where we edit the domain making the content
virtually independent of the domain name(specially great for media, linking
and move. :)
I agree that there will be a slight delay in rendering data at any level.
and this idea isnt for a plugin it is for the whole change of the way wp
stores data and the function that calls the url.
with wp-cache plugins, this will not be a problem at all :)

if the user copy pastes the url, while posting, the javascript gives a
prompt to amke the string replace for the dynamic [wpurl] or keep the static
link. in that case, its the final choice of the user.
