Which begs the question Who gave OpenAthens permission to assert for anything they publish? This web site I found
mentions the metadata URL and
that metadata does not contain any MDRPI extension information. So
there's no reference to the applicable registration policies and
practices, where I'd expect to find statements detailing the
legal/contractual basis that ultimately allows for the creation of
such metadata.

So yeah, I'd fully expect people to freak out if something like that
ever happend here.
