There are a great number of blackhats and spammers with sites pulling all sorts of things. Sometimes things can go on for quite some time before anyone over at Google notices.
I'm really good friends with a high ranking member of the spam team, and there's things I found out about that he didn't even know. I do let him know about things (if they're really bad) when I trip over them.
With just one link to gain from a redirect, your site might not ever get onto the radar of a blackhat or spammer. Sites that would offer them MANY links are more attractive and worthwhile to them Vs a site that offers them ONE link.
It all comes down to what works for you, Brook. If setting things up the way you've spoken of, works and does what you want it to, then by all means go with it.
I just wanted to inform you about other scenarios that can happen rather than to have you learn the hard way. I wish I'd have known about a lot of these things when I first started, but I learned the hard way. Once someone scrapes your hard work that's taken you years to build, it really opens your eyes (so to speak).
At the very least, I hope some of what I've said has been helpful. :)
