I don't understand your wish or your problem. (external url was just a 
annotation about the different handling of external URLs)

I try to resume your doing:

you have a page www.domain.com/short with content,
then you move the content to www.domain.com/in/a/deeper/tree
then you change the first page into a shortcut of the second page

now you want all links to the first page to redirect with 301 to the 
second page?

as I mentioned before:
all links inside of typo3 will never point to www.domain.com/short but 
only to www.domain.com/in/a/deeper/tree.

'deeplinks' from external may call the old URL and will be redirected 
(without 301) to the new page.
BUT with realURL you can insert a 301 redirect by yourself. I don't know 
whether collUrl has the same options.

BTW: which T3-version do you use?
