But, strategically, let the deposit be visible and OA immediately, while the "approval 
process" is taking place. It is very frustrating and de-motivating to authors (whom
we are trying to encourage to deposit) not to have instant OA, but to have to wait
for an undeterminate buffer period. -- Mark my words, it makes a huge difference
in deposit rate (and to the compliance rate, if mandated).
