Perhaps the problem is that there is too little incentive in spending
one owns resources, or giving finance to relations (sameAs or other).
So this does not happen. Would the world look less grim if we had such
incentives? But I guess that is a chicken and egg problem...

I disagree about the dois a bit: they make it real easy to find the
behind-the-paywall article, but of course they make it real hard to
find an open access version of the same article in a institutional or
subject repository. I am not too charmed by this anyways, but the doi
is a brilliant invention by commercial publishers to make it even less
likely to work.

Otherwise I love dois, of course...
