Here's an interesting link that touches on the idea of why this kind of 
thing happens at experimental Not-for-profit presses/journals.

Without knowing the specific details of this case, I can say that I've 
been involved often-enough in what seem like similar situations from the 
other side of the table. That is to say making stuff up as we go along. 
This is not a good thing in abstract, but it is an artifact of the 
disruptive nature of the activity I think that we end up with these issues.
