If you want to see something really sad, tell a book designer that he
can't specify the typefaces...

That said, In 99% of all academic publishing, a publisher adds no extra
value to a publication whatsoever. The extra value above and beyond the
contents of work comes from the editorial board. Tell an editorial board that
they'll be able to distribute their work for free, and they don't need to pay
millions to the journal publishers, then see how unhappy they are (answer:
not much).
