What is the most concise way of posting an ipfs addr?

https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmP3kt5cHFtW7en3S5CSZr2LwTzEH3AAaQ496jQDH13eTn?filename=all-girls-animated-time.svg

vs

no file name, and no https://, took a while but it loaded:

ipfs.io/ipfs/QmP3kt5cHFtW7en3S5CSZr2LwTzEH3AAaQ496jQDH13eTn

vs

You know where to go, here is the code: QmP3kt5cHFtW7en3S5CSZr2LwTzEH3AAaQ496jQDH13eTn

Copy QmP3kt5cHFtW7en3S5CSZr2LwTzEH3AAaQ496jQDH13eTn into the address bar, it offers the ipfs.io domain, which returns:

ipfs resolve -r /ipns/ipfs.io/QmP3kt5cHFtW7en3S5CSZr2LwTzEH3AAaQ496jQDH13eTn: no link named "QmP3kt5cHFtW7en3S5CSZr2LwTzEH3AAaQ496jQDH13eTn" under bafybeidoxymcggvqxa57wilnsfialweiblqazmfvy2yfh5gkq5ummuuo5q

Curious. Is that a low level directory address or something?

Those extra characters 'ipfs.io/ipfs/' bother me. in an op_return field, every byte still counts. Opinions, anyone?

On my list. I need to try. There are also Unstoppable Domains with .crypto and .Zil domains but needs some time to start. Not sure if one can set up crypto address for ipfs.io

And it looks like desktop install only

I am leaning towards almost the opposite of ipft and crypto-storage. Crypto-storage is a laudable goal, (though with great power comes the bill, perhaps) but it is not serving my need of trusted archival storage. My mind at the moment is to put the onus on the owner, and find the tools to do so. A tweek (maybe it is already there) to SLP allowing transfer of storage but enforcing content hash would serve.
