Integrating Google Scholar Citations to CrossRef for DOI Lookup

Tonight I was trying to add a couple of publications to my Google Scholar Citations account. The interface available to me is shown below.

Google Scholar Citations

It would make a lot more sense to provide the ability to input a DOI and use the Crossref Resolver to retrieve all of the associated information. There is a full DOI for this purpose (we use it on ChemSpider already) so if I wanted to put our new Melting Point Nature Precedings article into Google Scholar Citations then I would simply put 10.1038/npre.2011.6229.1 into the resolver and it would would link me, or for Google citations it would fill in the appropriate fields. Seems like a good marriage?
