Description: Currently we are assigning DOIs to datasets during dataset registration/creation, when they already have a DOI assigned to them in their EML.
The workflow described in http://dev.gbif.org/issues/browse/POR-2545 explains the rules for how to parse the EML to looks for a Dataset's DOI.
When we crawl the dataset's EML, we will swap the GBIF DOI with the user-assigned (EML) DOI.
Fixing this, would save save some frustration with publishers who express dissatisfaction with us assigning their dataset an unnecessary extra DOI.

Closing as won't fix.
No plan to modify workflow whereby existing DOI in EML gets parsed during crawling - not at registration.
