Giving the link to overdrive is just a nudge that reminds people that the ebook may be available to their libraries. If people are using their elibraries, they are probably aware of their limitations, and are probably aware of whether it is worth while to pursue requesting the ebook.

Anyway, since WTSharpe says this isn't going to happen, the point is moot.
I don't mind at all if people mention links to overdrive or other lending libraries in their posts.
