I would rather pay $1 to provide bigger, better cookies or tap-dancing penguins during the plenaries.
 
I see no value in doing this and in fact plenty of reasons to oppose it. 
 
Where is the $1500 of value to the IETF here? I can see the value to DOI. If the IETF were to go this route it should be expecting DOI to be paying a cut of the additional business generated, not to hand money over.

Note that

    DOI is a registered URI within the info-URI namespace (IETF RFC 
4452, the "info" URI Scheme for Information
    Assets with Identifiers in Public Namespaces). Further information 
is available at http://info-uri.info <http://info-uri.info/> .

These are not free; if we got DOI's for all RFCs through, e.g., 
Bowker, it would cost

    Up to 9999 DOIs - $1500 per year

I think it would be a good idea. A $ 1 increase in registration fees 
would more than pay for it.

Marshall
