Thanks Phil. It seems the chances of both a reader or a machine finding 
the data from an article DOI will improve if it also has a data DOI. 
Crossref and Datacite have details on 'cross cite' content negotiation 
at http://crosscite.org/cn/

Re the Amsterdam Manifesto statement that data should be deposited in 
"persistent public repositories",  the PREPARDE draft guidelines for 
publishers on recommending repositories for data deposit (at 
http://bit.ly/ZhYHZl ) are a useful guide to work out what that means. 
The guidelines include factors like whether the repository is well used, 
as an indicator of likely persistence, along with more rigorous evidence 
like certification on 'trusted repository' standards like Data Seal of 
Approval and ISO 16363.
