Add DOI year cutoff OR Crossref XML year cutoff

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7447&p=28841#p28841 for discussion. I favour the DOI year cutoff method (that is, allow JMs to specify a year before which DOIs are not generated) since, as Piotreba points out, there may be other reasons besides paying Crossref why DOIs may not be necessary before a given year. However, the Crossref XML export plugin should handle this gracefully.
One more additional comment, somewhat culled from the forum thread: also allow for instances where individual articles may not need or want a DOI assigned to them.
