It occurs to me that open review could also reduce the amount of reviewer person-hours that are spent on any given manuscript. If your article is accepted by the 4th journal that you submit it to, it probably had 8 or more reviewers spending time on it. If all reviews were open, the second editor could already have used the reviews from the first journal to form an opinion about the manuscript (and whether it's being treated appropriately). Some publishers ask reviewers "Is it OK if we send your review to the editor in the event that the authors resubmit to another of our journals", but this shouldn't be limited to each publisher's domain.
