[Esip-preserve] DataCite to require "landing pages"

Just wondering out loud? -- is it possible / desirable to identify a
"manageable sized" set of data as a canonical "test bed"
and produce instances of the full range of options for treatment /
presentation/ access?

Has this been done? (Or can we point to such an example that we consider
fully exemplary in this way?)
