Not so fast...

As I said, the exclusive, open-ended license isn't enforceable in all

Also, where in the sample does it say the author can put the published
content (the author's own format) onto an e-print server (the license
is ambiguous regarding Nature's formatted version vs. the author
formatted version). It only speaks of the "Contribution". It seems much
more restrictive to me than the rights APS
grants back to the authors.
