Including eReserve provisions in licensing contracts

I realize that some databases do not have stable URLs, in which case it is
impractical to include links to particular documents in those databases.
However, each document in many databases, e.g. JSTOR, does have a stable
URL, and therefore would complement eReserve services.

If your library provides instructional support via electronic reserve,
when negotiating the license for a particular database, do you also
negotiate some amount of linking (up to, and including, unlimited) from
eReserve to the licensed database/s?

How easy, or gnarly, is that part of the negotiations?

Which providers have been the most cooperative?

Have you ever had to negotiate ereserve links as a separate
