I've had an idea like this in the back of my mind for a while. When you're
denied access to a paper on a journal website, it would be great to have a
browser plugin to search institutional repositories etc. for the same
paper. A sort of alternative DOI resolution system. Obviously there's some
technical challenges in that - and the publishers probably wouldn't cheer
for it - but it seems worth exploring.
