GDB was shut down last year, and the organization that hosted it shut
down the domain too. I'm not sure that a community resolver should
cache copies of data and/or metadata for objects owned by now-defunct
entities. Wouldn't that be conflating a resolver with an archive?
I.e., the onus of object persistence is with the digital object
owner, not the identifier resolver, right?
(I do agree with more or less everything else you said, though.)
