Anonynimity in the review process (was Authors' rights)

For many years a University of Chicago journal (Current Anthropology)
has made a point of requesting public comment ("reviews") of articles
that were subject to a variety of opinions. This was done with the
author's approval and the article was held for two or three issues in
order to allow copies to be mailed to all readers who requested them
and to allow their short comments to be returned to the editors. These
public replies were then published in conjunction with the original
article and a summary comment by the author. This "star" treatment is
not done for all articles, but I have felt this was an excellent idea.
