The document seems to not pay much attention to what I would consider
the most important function of a DOI:  Allowing automatic retrieval of
the document.  Indeed, I find one of the ironies of the DOI system
that a DOI is usually not convertable into the document that it
references.  But if the IETF is going to bother with DOIs, we should
enable the most useful use of them.
