[EP-tech] ORCID Support Advance Update

Hi Will,

thank you for the new version and fixing two issues thereby.

I don't understand your argumentation for not using a DOI lookup during 
the import from ORCID process. The data in Crossref which includes some 
ORCIDs will already have been authorized by the author(s), otherwise the 
ORCIDs would not be part of Crossref data. Thereby, I see no reason that 
the users have to authorize again in the repository. I also see no 
reason why a user want to (manually) replace an ORCID coming from 
Crossref. Is there a realistic scenario for that? However, even besides 
the ORCID information, the other bibliographic data from Crossref is 
much better than the one which can be imported by orcid.org only. Can 
you reconsider the availability of an DOI import for the ORCID plugin?

Best regards,
