Today, there is this response. I didn't find it convincing; I think that they missed the biggest benefit of publishers - that of being properly edited and proofed.
They mentioned "editorial input" which seems to me to be the most important thing. This probably inludes being edited and proofed. But proofing something anybody can do. It is the editorial input that is important.
