I rather give up Google Plus entirely so that I can keep my Google Profile with the vanity URL which I worked so hard to build up. I even have business cards with the vanity URL printed on it (silly me).

The reason is that the redirect may only be temporary. AFAIK, there has been no news on how long Google intends to keep the Profile URL structure. I suspect it will be phrased out once Google plus takes off.
