Yes, the cost (for authors) of having something published with a qualification is intended to widen their range of options beyond publish-reject as well as to protect the journal's reputation... all virtual so far, practice will follow.

As for your question: essentially we will publish anything, as

said previously the cost of publication or rejection
is intended to be borne by the author.
Having trouble understanding this: how does 'cost of rejection'
'we will publish anything'? And is the 'cost' here meant to mean
the reputational cost of having bad work published with negative
reviewsrather than just being rejected, or is there some other
kind of cost
I'm not trying to reopen old debates, just having trouble
conclusions looking through the list archives.
