The resolution spec for DOIs is the Handle spec (DOIs are technically  
Handles). The handbook - and the Handle Resolution spec - clearly  
distinguish between the Handle protocol (part of the spec) and a  
proxy server (a commitment of the IDF and CNRI aimed to, but not  
guaranteed to exist in perpetuity).

That said, it would certainly be great to have a LSID User's Manual,  
and to have a central proxy server advertised to work in perpetuity.  
We're pretty close to the latter.
