[I know of a site] that 301'd their entire site to a new domain. ...they've recovered all of their panda rankings.... and are doing quite well in the rankings (for now)....
We recently 301'd all of our URL's from complicated long key word rich to short and sweet and we didn't see a negative effect.
My opinion is that Google has the 301 DOWN... and it's low risk AS LONG AS YOU DON'T MAKE A MISTAKE!
