Do not allow restrictive access control change to content with a DOI

Thinking about this more, we have only CN.setAccessPolicy() in the DataONE API. So any change in the access policy would be network-wide. Do we really want to prevent changing access to be non-public if the object has a DOI and enforce this rule for all of DataONE?
We could restrict the old Metacat API to fail when setting access on a docid that maps to a DOI, but that will be a small fraction of our API calls going forward since it is deprecated.
