Creator records to include URL field

I really love that you can include a control number in the creator record! It's great to be able to indicate that this record is found in the Library of Congress authorities list under a specific control number. My only suggestion is if this could be automated to trigger a URL (or even just allow a URL field to manually enter it) and be publicly viewable, so users could see that it's found in the authorities list and can click on the link (i.e., http://lccn.loc.gov/n85089022) to take them right to that record. From there, they can browse for that term in the authorities list or in the LC catalog, see other name variants that they may have listed, and get other information, like biographical notes.
