Not everything the spec talks about is required...

 From <http://www.doi.org/handbook_2000/enumeration.html#2.9.2>:

   "Users may resolve DOI names using the URL syntax through the DOI System 
proxy server (http://dx.doi.org). A DOI name of the form doi:10.123/456 
would be resolved from the address: "http://dx.doi.org/10.123/456". Any 
standard browser encountering a DOI name in this form will be able to 
resolve it. The use of the proxy server does not interfere with any http 
requirements, so DOI names may be used with other http-based mechanisms 
such as OpenURL, PURL, parameter passing, etc. The proxy server is 
maintained by the IDF and the DOI System community for use by all."
