Community consultation @ Nature Biotech

Open peer review at Nat Biotech ? At least this was the first time I noticed it:

Various scientific communities are engaged in producing data-reporting standards similar to the MIAME guidelines for microarray data. Some of these papers are under consideration for publication in Nature Biotechnology. To encourage broad participation in the standards-development process, we are making the papers freely available at and we urge you to participate and send us your comments and suggestions, which will be carefully considered by the authors, reviewers and editors.

Currently they are asking for comments on the proposal for: The Minimum Information required for reporting a Molecular Interaction Experiment (MIMIx)(PDF).
